Learn what Goes on Behind the Camera + Perform and Receive Advice from One of the Industry’s Most Talented Directors

Join The Meus Productions and Director Scott Eldridge on Saturday, September 30th from 8:30am to 12:30pm for a one of a kind creative experience!

With over 60 directing and producing credits, extensive experiences in editing, writing, and casting, and great industry insight, this intimate workshop opportunity with Scott will be something you will not want to miss!

This comprehensive four hour condensed workshop will give actors the chance to learn from one of the industry’s best while expanding on their acting and directing skills. Learn from a renowned Canadian director of what goes into directing and what directors are truly looking for in their actors on set. Scott will not only provide a comprehensive learning experience of the technicalities of directing through directing exercises, but actors will be given the chance to test their skills through various activities including improv exercises as well as short scripted scenes. In addition to receiving constructive feedback from Scott and directing a scene that will leave you with greater insight into the fundamentals of video production, each actor will receive their ‘dramatic exercise’ performance in video format, which can later be included in a professional portfolio!

Testimonials:

“If you are serious about filmmaking and have an opportunity to take Scott’s workshop, we would highly recommend it without hesitation. Emphasizing practice, freedom of expression, and feedback, the workshop works extremely well” - Cathie LeBlanc, Membership Services Director at the New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-Operative

“Mr. Eldridge was very engaging and we squeezed a lot of great exercises into two days. I am pleased to support any future workshops Mr. Eldridge plans to offer” – Marc Winkler

“By the end of the two days I could see how much I had learned through Scott’s inside-to-outside teaching methods… I would absolutely participate in another of Scott’s workshops the next time he is in Ottawa” – Heidi Vandenbroeke, Filmmaker and Digital Designer


“Scott’s exciting, positive energy and ability to have fun while learning helped take away the pressure of trying to be a perfectionist. I think film makers at various levels of experience would benefit greatly from taking one of Scott’s workshops” – Natasha Batt

“I worked with Scott to organize a two day Directing Actors Workshop for our members in November 2014… The workshop was well attended, well received, and had extremely positive feedback from the participants, particularly with regards to Scott’s energy and enthusiasm for teaching, and the hands- on and interactive nature of the workshop” – Howard Adler, Workshop Coordinator at SAW Video Media Art Centre

“Scott took the time to help us dissect scenes and understand what needed to be achieved in each scene, emotionally, physically, etc. This helped me see filmmaking in a completely new light, rather than just setting up and capturing something on camera” – Fabio Ricci

“I believe the workshop was a valuable use of my time. There is nothing like experiential learning to capture new concepts and ideas, and there was plenty of experiential learning in the workshop I participated in… We all benefited from Scott’s extensive knowledge” – France Benoit

“I would highly recommend Mr. Eldridge as a workshop instructor who approaches teaching in a fun and engaging way that will leave participants with a lasting impression of what it is to be a director” – Jeremy Emerson, Executive Director, Western Arctic Moving Pictures Film Society

In a few short hours, Scott created and held a collaborative learning space where I was pushed harder than I’ve been pushed in years. I take, and lead, a lot of workshops and courses, so I do not say that lightly. Three months later, I can honestly say that the most lasting consequence of the workshop is that it shattered my ability to “sit on the fence” and defer creative work until a more convenient, comfortable time. Through several role plays and pleasantly surprising exercises, Scott set up opportunities for me to get really grounded in the knowledge that I have good instincts and make good decisions, and also gently illustrated how to make good ideas better… The participants in our workshop were all over the map in terms of experience in film/video and in life, and Scott was able to quickly get all of us on common ground where we could work together. And then Scott made us work hard! The way that Scott introduced theory and his experience to set the scenes, then directed us to GO and apply that was wonderful. At first, it was a bit uncomfortable, but Scott coached us in his supportive, encouraging leadership style so that even the shyest among us was able to let go of reservations about acting and directing others – with an audience – and to enter the experience. Wow.” - Melony McCarthy, Participant in Scott’s 2016 New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Cooperative Directing Actors Workshop
