Laforet teaches his students how to effectively execute their vision and enables them to transmit a visual language that elicits an emotional connection and response from their audience. The techniques can be applied to various film projects and the principles taught by Laforet provide unique, ground-breaking, and competitive insight that not only is taught in theory but engages students with live demonstrations using some of the most advanced cinema technology. This class leaves students with a new perspective on film viewing and causes them to critically analyze each shot and sequence in their own filmmaking.
Past students of this workshop have had an overwhelmingly positive response:
“Vincent, my God! Awesome work! Great everything! Story, script, acting, shooting, location, FX, and you weren’t bad either. Dude, you’re brilliant! Period!” – John Lamar
“Incredible experience. Even though I am an experienced commercial director and photographer, this made me feel like a novice… and this is a good thing. Thanks for everything.” – Michael Holder
“Incredibly informative and highly recommended” (Flew in from London to attend in Boston)." – Nick McKinless, Filmmaker/Stuntman in Sherlock Holmes
“How did he put a year of film school into one day?” – Nick Army
“This workshop was awesome! Kudos to the crew and to Vincent for all your hard work. I have a new appreciation for the complexity of filmmaking and the critical importance of the pre-production. I’m completely new to this so I appreciated the opportunity to participate in the Schindler’s List shoot. I’ve learned so much today, and I am excited to take my new knowledge and try to apply it to my next project.” – Megan Carroll
