Elliot Grove, founder of Raindance Film Festival, the British Independent Film Awards (BIFA’s) and Raindance Film School has a dilemma. Whilst Raindance’s reputation as one of the world’s Mecca’s of indie filmmaking has grown unabated for the last quarter-century, the courses it offers aspiring filmmakers have been geographically limited to its centres mostly in London and Toronto, with satellite locations in LA, Berlin and a few other cities.
If you wanted to take one of around 40 different courses on offer, from Producing, to Scriptwriting, to working with actors or Directing itself… you would need to be able to travel to their physical locations.
This may not have been such a problem without the mainstream advent of eLearning – and newbie competitors such as Masterclass.com popping up and offering young filmmakers more choice than ever about how to develop and master their craft. It wasn’t all bad though as Raindance’s reputation started to reach far beyond its physical locations and in particular, demand for Raindance’s approach to doing things started to sprout in countries as far afield as Japan, China and Korea. The challenge was how to satisfy such demand WITHOUT compromising Raindance’s commitment to the highest quality tuition and the benefits of being in the classroom face-to-face with Raindance Tutors.
How to replicate, match or even surpass that experience for film learners worldwide? Let’s watch Elliot explain how the solution is growing through their collaboration with Quickclass – and how that holds the potential to transform their business.
