Script to Screen presents a one-day screenwriting workshop for both emerging and experienced filmmakers of Christchurch.
What Do You Want?: screenwriter, playwright and novelist Duncan Sarkies leads a 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 film. The day will be interactive with fun practical exercises to help you explore the power of motivated characters. (Bring a pen and some paper and limber up your writing hand and your brain.)
Date: Saturday 17 March
Time: 9.30am – 4.30pm
Venue:150 Madras St, Christchurch. NZ Broadcasting School, Ara Institute of Canterbury
Cost: $20. Please bring cash on the day. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided but you will need to bring your own lunch.
Registration: Places are limited so please register
