Director

London-based, Video Director Editor Ian Mansfield is a Freelance Filmmaker.

TO HONE MY SKILLS

As a director, I went on a two-day training workshop on directing actors taught by the freelance film and TV Director Pete Travis, who directed the feature films (Dredd 2012, and Vantage Point 2008) and (Omagh 2004 and The Go-Between 2015) for TV. I did this course to get a better insight into how to cast, do a read-through, block for the camera, and the necessary homework a director has to do to create trust with the actors. In March last year, the course was held at the University of Greenwich and organized by FEST FILM LAB see their website. For attendance, participants received a certificate.

Among the many qualifications I have, I completed a Film & Video Production BA Degree Course at the University of the Arts in London and was awarded a B.A with 2.1 honours certificate. Before that, I completed the first year of a BA Media Studies Degree at the University of the Creative Arts and received a Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE).

Runaround

Short Film

Vic, a cocky car salesman, joins Bianca, a customer, for a test drive in a very prestigious car. As Bianca drives the car, she loves how it feels, but can Vic stay the distance to get a sale. 

As its producer, director and editor, this was a profound challenge to do, but I did it with the support of a great team. 

Limitations

Short Film

As a producer, I was solely responsible for all production phases, from planning the shoot to post on this challenging and artistically sensitive exposition of the modern dance movement.
