“Writing is like archaeology. Sometimes you find large pieces of bone, but sometimes the bones come out in fragments. The important thing is knowing how to dig.” – Duncan Sarkies
After delivering one of the most highly-rated sessions at 2015’s Big Screen Symposium, screenwriter Duncan Sarkies presents a session unearthing his learnings about the writing process. Join us as he explores the two phases of the writing process – finding a story, and building a project.
Duncan Sarkies is a screenwriter, novelist, performer and short story writer. In screen he is known for his screenplays SCARFIES and TWO LITTLE BOYS (adapted from his novel of the same name). He has also written two episodes of FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS, and has written for Australian comedy series MAXIMUM CHOPPAGE. His recent project is the podcast THE MYSTERIOUS SECRETS OF UNCLE BERTIE’S BOTANARIUM.
Come early for a drink and stay afterwards for a slice of pizza on us.
