Drawing as a way of Seeing (4 sessions)
Sep 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Drawing as a way of Seeing (4 sessions) @ Sur Place Media | Montréal | QC | CA

Throughout all my projects as a visual/theatre/film artist one skill has helped me more than any other – drawing! The art and practice of seeing spacial relationships, textures, proportions, perspective, tone and volume has helped me to render and create realities and fictions quickly and easily .

These skills have transformed how I see, and translate into everything else I do, from graphic design to photography to set design for TV/Film. It has become a way of seeing, thinking and communicating that is an essential tool for any visual practice.

This course will take you through a series of skill building workshops designed for you to become skilled at drawing & rendering as well as help you design a regular practice so that it becomes a part of your professional toolkit. We will use a variety of drawing media (wet and dry) and practice with a variety of subjects, images and references including a life drawing model.

Write Like a Pro #7 (4 sessions)
Sep 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Write Like a Pro #7 (4 sessions) @ Sur Place Media | Montréal | QC | CA

The Write Like a Pro workshop is designed to guide participants through the stylistic and technical elements that make a great piece of writing. It draws heavily from the art and craft of narrative non-fiction, but is relevant for anyone who wants to communicate more effectively through the written word. The nut of it is: How do you make your truth compelling to others?  

 Over the course of the workshop, we’ll cover: shaping ideas; planning and organizing material; elements of storytelling; wordcraft and style; finding your voice; tough-love editing; and, finally, putting your work out there.  

 Now in its SIXTH run, this edition of Write Like a Pro will put special focus on practising techniques we learn in class through the process of developing, writing, and polishing a short (500- to 1000- word) non-fiction piece by the end of the workshop.

 Some class time will be spent writing, but participants will get more out of the workshop if they’re able to set aside an additional hour or so per week to write at home. For many past participants, making time to sit down and write has been the most rewarding part.

Behind The Camera: An Introduction To Self-produced Documentary Film (4 Sessions)
Oct 17 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Behind The Camera: An Introduction To Self-produced Documentary Film (4 Sessions) @ Sur Place Media | Montréal | QC | CA
This workshop aims at demystifying documentary practice, and will give you the confidence, knowledge and skills to enter this space and self-produce your own documentary.

Everyone has a story to tell but, too often, commercial demands and a closed movie industry appear as impenetrable barriers to making documentary films. Simon Kessler has worked in both network television and on personal projects with limited financial and technical support. Both experiences have led him to realize that a documentary storyteller is limited only by their imagination and ingenuity. Big budgets and institutional support are nice, but lacking those resources should not be a barrier to making your movie, or just getting started in the genre.

Schedule

  • Thursday, Oct 17, 6:30-9:00pm
  • Thursday, Oct 24, 6:30-9:00pm
  • 2 week break: Independent project work.**
  • Thursday, Nov 14, 6:30-9:00pm
  • Thursday, Nov 21, 6:30-9:00pm

** During the 2 week break, the teacher and students remain in contact through Sur Place’s online platform, the Rink.

Format

The format of the workshop will be problem-based. Each week we will address two to three problems that commonly emerge in documentary film. We will consider (1) pragmatic concerns—from camera choice to gaining site access and building rapport, (2) aesthetic concerns—from framing to exposure and shot choice, and (3) theoretical concerns—including questioning the documentary’s point of view and claims to objectivity.

These problems will be further elaborated each week through screenings of short excerpts of different kinds of documentaries. As a group, we will identify and discuss the choices filmmakers have made in order to assist each participant define and approach their own practice. There will be opportunities for feedback during the workshop. Over the course of the four weeks, you’ll be invited to produce two to five minutes of footage, implementing some of the techniques and discussions from previous weeks.

Who should attend?

This workshop is best suited for people who are beginning to develop their documentary film practice. Participants are encouraged to come with a project idea they would like to develop over the course of the workshop. By the end of the workshop, participants can expect to come away with the tools to start their own documentary projects.

Introduction to Creative Writing (8 sessions)
Oct 21 @ 6:30 pm – Oct 21 @ 8:30 pm
Introduction to Creative Writing (8 sessions) @ Sur Place Media | Montréal | QC | CA

Aspiring to write but unsure where to start?

Living in a world where the written word is the primary means of communication for many, we’re all creative writers in some capacity. Even so, when it comes to starting a novel, developing a poem, or pruning back a short story, this experience can be intimidating. Getting words down can feel like being dropped in the deep end of a dark pool without knowing how to swim.

This eight-week introductory course is tailored for all creatives ready to get their feet wet. Through exercises in voice, genre, and poetics, we will flex our storytelling muscles.  Weekly readings and class discussions provide us with the foundation to turn a critical eye to our own work. The final project, a short piece of creative writing that integrates what’s been covered, will be developed during the course then polished through workshopping.

Why do we shy away from difficult topics? How do we write about sex, death, politics or trauma without alienating our audience? How do we build a sense of safety when putting ourselves on the line in front of family, friends and the general public?

This workshop is for writers who are interested in examining touchy subjects but don’t know how to get started. We’ll explore privilege and the idea of a writer’s responsibility while learning techniques that can help us build confidence in working with taboo themes.

LISTS, NOTES, and GUTS with Terry Doyle
Dec 6 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
LISTS, NOTES, and GUTS with Terry Doyle @ Sur Place Media | Montréal | QC | CA
In LISTS, NOTES and GUTS we will discuss instinct, intuition, and observation as a means of producing short story first drafts.

We will talk about taking NOTES. All the time. Everywhere you go. Your writer’s eye should be open and on the lookout for sparkling details, strange truths, and unforgettable images. These notes we will compile, constantly, every day from now on. Then we will use them to make our LISTS. These lists will work as an aid, a support for when we falter, when our pens lift off the page. That is when we will trust our GUTS.

Bring ideas, images, notes, and some guts. We will compile lists and we will free-write our way to a first draft.

Terry Doyle is from the Goulds, Newfoundland. In 2017 he won the Percy Janes First Novel Award and was a finalist for the NLCU Fresh Fish Award. Terry’s work has appeared in Riddle Fence, Leopardskin & Limes, untethered, and The Newfoundland Quarterly. His debut book of short stories DIG was published in 2019 by Breakwater Books.
