William Oldroyd Talks Tips and Directing - National Youth Film Academy


As well as producing short films, our Summer 2018 #SetReady course participants enjoyed masterclasses and workshops with an all-star line up of industry professionals!

Actor Douglas Booth (Romeo and Juliet), Cinematographer Phil Meheux (CasinoRoyal), and Industrial Light and Magic’s Daniele Bigi (Head of VFX, Ready Player One) are just a few of the big names participating.

We also had the absolute pleasure of hearing from Director William Oldroyd!

William is best known for the BAFTA nominated Lady Macbeth (2016).

We caught up with Oldroyd after his masterclass; where he gave tips for prepping and directing films. He also spoke about the importance of building your network.
