The Hollywood Film Directing seminar is the ideal launching pad for anyone who aspires to direct professionally. In two days, two master teachers reveal the essential elements of craft which all great directors use to create powerful films. Both Mark W. Travis and Gil Bettman have spent a lifetime directing and teaching. Drawing on this experience they have developed probing insights into the secrets of directing. Both have published books praised as masterful and definitive by working directors such as Bob Zemeckis, John Badham and Mark Rydell.

The demand for their extraordinary teaching skills has spread world-wide, and taken them to eighteen countries where they have taught at forty different filmschools and other venues. Now they have teamed up to teach aspiring directors how to use superior rehearsal technique and insightful script analysis to create great performances, and how to best capture those performances on film through cutting-edge visual design.
