Film and Edit Workshop, 21st July 2019


Over the last 15 years I have taught thousands of people around the globe (via 1:1, workshops, online).  Which is why this natural progression to creating an all-in-one workshop made total sense.  No matter what your experience (complete beginner, or experienced) you will get the most out of me, as well as gain a unique chance to film and edit your own promo film of top model, Erin Williams.  I’ll be editing on the big screen, so you can follow along. You’re in a for a real treat!

Who’s Involved

Tutor: Richard Wakefield (,, Model: Erin Williams (IG), Venue:The Loft Studio (site) run by Dan Tidswell (IG)


Here is a short showreel showcasing my film work:

More details

The aim is for you to learn how to best use your camera, settings and equipment to film in any situation. You’ll be able to use filming techniques to film in a variety of styles; cinematic, reportage, run ‘n gun. You’ll start thinking ‘for the edit’; in other words you’ll film in a way that leads to creative and storytelling editing, with a quick and efficient edit workflow. Most of all, you’ll be able to walk into any scenario (fashion, promo, behind the scenes, wedding, live event, corporate) and be able to adapt and think quickly in order to get the best shots.
