MASTERCLASS IN DIRECTING WITH LEIGH WHANNELL (SYDNEY)
Date 27 May 2019
Location Event Cinemas Westfield Bondi Junction
We are pleased to invite you to a Masterclass in Directing with Australian director, screenwriter, producer, and actor Leigh Whannell. This event is complimentary for AFI | AACTA members and $10 for non-members.
The masterclass will be moderated by Luke Buckmaster, film critic and writer for Guardian Australia, and contributor to a range of Australian publications.
Whannell has co-created some of the most original and profitable films of his generation, including the SAW and INSIDIOUS franchises. In addition to writing all four INSIDIOUS films, Whannell made his directorial debut with INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 in 2015. Whannell wrote and directed UPGRADE, which received seven 2018 AACTA Award nominations including Best Original Screenplay. Currently, Whannell is in Australia in pre-production on THE INVISIBLE MAN starring Elisabeth Moss, which he wrote and will direct for Universal.
In a one-off special event, Whannell will take the audience on a visual journey through the making of UPGRADE – deconstructing the film on screen, scene by scene. Known for its dazzling cinematography and pioneering camerawork – all devised by Whannell – this is an essential masterclass for all admirers of Whannell’s work, all fans of the movie, and for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of the directing process.
