    Learn how to make documentaries and television reportages

    Hello, I'm Sam!
    I've been making documentaries and TV shows for 8 years.
    I've made dozens of (short) documentaries and TV shows. My main focus is directing, research & interviewing.
    I can teach you everything there is to know about making documentaries.

    I studied documentary directing at the Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema & Sound in Brussels and started working as director right after I graduated.

    The lessons will cover everything you need to know about how to make a documentary. The idea & research fase, conceptualisation of the idea, interview techniques, filming techniques, the importance of sound, the editing process and ways to fund your film will all talked about in great detail.

    I'm looking forward to teaching all the things I've learned over the last years so you will be able to make your own documentaries or to gather the knowhow so you could start working as a (freelance) director as well and make your living out of your love for film!

    About Me

    I've been making music and playing in (rock) bands since I was a teenager.
    About 7 years ago I got very much into electronic music and I took my music career in a different direction. At first it might seem overwhelming cause working with Ableton might be a bit much at first.
    I followed several courses to get better and year after year my knowhow about Ableton and electronic music production grew.
    Now I'm very much looking forward in sharing that knowledge I gathered over the years in just a few lessons!
    I like to work very customised to answer all your questions and make you a good music producer!

    Education

    Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema & Sound, RITCS, Brussels
    I've been working as a director and sound recorder for 6 years and I've been making music for an even longer time :)

    Experience / Qualifications

    * I've played in and produced music in several bands
    * I'm comfortable using Ableton in Live settings
    * I design my own drum-/percussive elements (Kicks, rimshots, HH,...) what really makes a big difference then using stock plugins in Ableton.
    * I love working with analog synthesis using my prophet, but Ableton has several features to go crazy with sounddesign too! :)
    * I've made music for expositions, short- & full lengths documentaries.
    Hello, I'm Sam :) As a music producer I've been working with Ableton live for both recording and making music as well as Live performances. I'm comfortable using Ableton stock plugins but also 3th party plugins such as Fabfilter plugins (Q3, R, L2,...) and making percussive sounds with Serum (or Operator in Ableton). I also do a lot of sounddesign using my prophet 6 or record guitar and make it stand out in the mix. I'm very happy to hear what you like to learn so I can adjust the lessons to exactly what you need! Please tell me what the issues are you're having or what you would like to learn and I'll make sessions at your personal level. For myself, I mainly use Ableton to make electronic (deep house) music with rock influences.

    Cinematic culture / acting for screen - theory and practice
    Arts are essential in an individual's personal development. Some people find their way alone, and some have to opportunity to be guided, encouraged and pushed by someone who has been in the industry for years. To be taking this kind of course with me will consist in laying a strong foundation of knowledge in domains such as literature, performing arts and cinema, equaled by practice. However, considering that I will be working with young people, I will not bring to my class rules and techniques. Everyone has different interests and strengths and I intend to discover it, dig into and flourish their specific needs. Each student will have their own personalized schedule / training.
