About the event
Join Film Fatales on Friday April 21st for an online Episodic Television workshop with two-time Emmy award-winning television director Mary Lou Belli, whose directing credits include Bull, NCIS: New Orleans, and The Ms Pat Show. Learn how to prep from a working TV director! What happens in a tone meeting? How do you communicate with actors before you get on set? What is it like being a guest on set? In this interactive workshop, you will explore casting, production design, script breakdown, scene blocking and shot listing. You can then compare your work to an actual episode that has already aired and evaluate how your choices would be another option, or what you might change to make the work more “shootable.” Mary Lou’s extensive teaching experience includes the 2023 Warner Brothers Discovery Access Directors Program as well as many of the vibrant diversity programs including ABC/Disney, CBS, Sony, HBO Access, and AFIDWW mentoring the next generation of directors. This workshop will be followed by a live Q&A moderated by Film Fatales member Afia Nathaniel (Chicago Med).
