3. Shanghai, China
=======================================================

I’m just letting you know that the reason you did not receive an
ezine for December and January is that I was suddenly asked to go
teach at the Shanghai Vancouver Film School in mid Decemmber. It
was an incredibly intense and rewarding 7 weeks and I wouldn’t
have missed the opportunity for anything.

I returned to Vancouver on January 30 and I am just now getting
back to my normal online activities. 🙂

NOTE: This month’s ezine is a cut-down version. I will return to
the normal publication cycle in March.

Thank you for your understanding.

Does Cinematography”

5. Film Directing Coach – Peter D. Marshall
=======================================================

Actors, Singers and Athletes Have Private Coaches. So Why Not
Film and TV Directors? http://actioncutprint.com/filmdirectingcoach/

Hilary Swank used an acting coach to prepare for her role in Boys
Don’t Cry. She won her first Academy Award.

Singer Renee Fleming has always used a vocal coach. She has won
several Grammy Awards.

Rafael Nadal’s coach urged him on from the sidelines during his
Wimbledon tennis tournament win in 2010.

Arnold Palmer improved his game with the help of a coach. Even
Tiger Woods has had several coaches.

As a matter of fact, winners in nearly every profession
(athletes, actors, singers, business executives) know that
without the right coach, they won’t perform at their peak.

They know that without the support of an experienced and
qualified coach, they would constantly struggle to achieve
success.

So if these top professionals in their respective fields use
coaches, why not film directors?

So why hire me as your film directing coach?

Along with my international teaching experiences and my 39 years
of professional filmmaking experience (as a TV Director and
Feature 1st AD), I feel I have the necessary qualifications to
help you achieve your dreams of being a creative and successful
independent film director.

With that in mind, I would like to introduce you to my Film
Directing Coaching services via Skype:

7. Product Promotion And Film Workshops

From time to time, I will contact you to inform you of film
