Ever wanted to make your own movie but afraid of the spiralling costs that come with such endeavours? Intense Productions have got you covered with an in-depth, intensive one-day course to set you on the right film-making tracks. These masterclasses will be taking place across the country with budding directors and producers learning how to make your own film and, just as importantly, how to sell it. To guide the inexperienced along the way to super producer status is ‘El Mariachi’ himself Carlos Gallardo. Having made his name with Robert Rodriguez as they shot the film that would be Desperado for just $7,000 in 1992, Gallardo has since gone on to produce and act in Hollywood, remaining close with Rodriguez and gaining a rare insight into what it means to be an outsider and make it in the movie business. A great opportunity to learn all the ins and outs of the film industry in just one day, there is also an early bird price that slashes £20 off the price. You may need that when you’re making your first feature.

Mon 5 May, The Comedy Store, Arches 3 & 4 Deansgate Locks, Whitworth Street West, M1 5LH, 9.30am – 5.30pm, Earlybird price £79 (Usual Price £99), www.eventbrite.co.uk
