Script to Screen presents a one-day feature film writing workshop for emerging filmmakers of Wellington.
What Do You Want?: Screenwriter, playwright and novelist Duncan Sarkies leads a morning workshop on character objectives: how an understanding of what your character wants and the obstacles that get in their way can be used to generate ideas for your story.
Collaborative Practice: Esteemed filmmaker Gaylene Preston discusses creating a workable framework for each individual project. She’ll talk about managing the perils and pitfalls of working in such an inherently collaborative medium from the outset, including establishing clarity around ownership, ensuring you’re making the same project, and a team’s creative process.
Writing, re-writing, re-writing: Screenwriter Nick Ward shares his secrets to writing a screenplay that engages the reader and reads professionally. Come and hear how to inspire producers, avoid the common pitfalls and deal with the tough realities of getting your story to the big screen.
Date: Saturday 11 November
Time: 9.30am – 4.30pm
Venue: The Vogelmorn Bowling Club, 93 Mornington Rd, Brooklyn, Wellington
Cost: $20. Please bring cash on the day. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided. Please bring lunch with you.
