Story Camp is a residential feature film workshop that fosters craft, voice and vision. Talented NZ screenwriters and filmmakers workshop their projects with exceptional international and local advisors.
Each selected writer or team will have a rigorous five-day experience designed specifically to meet the development needs of their feature film project. The process for each participant will be made up of some or all of the following development techniques: one-on-one script sessions, project-based group workshops, read-throughs, and workshopping with actors.
The writers’ key collaborators will be invited in to parts of the process in instances where that will be of additional benefit to the process and project. Past participants can re-apply if their project has progressed significantly, and sessions can be tailored for writers and directors with projects in an advanced development phase.
Past international advisors have included legendary US screenwriter Joan Tewkesbury (MCCABE & MRS. MILLER, THIEVES LIKE US and NASHVILLE) filmmaker & Artistic Director of the Sundance Directors’ Lab Gyula Gazdag, Hollywood writer & longstanding Sundance mentor Michael Goldenberg (HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX), Academy Award and BAFTA winning screenwriter David Seidler (THE KING’S SPEECH), and revolutionary Mexican screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga (AMORES PEROS, 21 GRAMS, BABEL).
