Script to Screen presents a weekend workshop for the storytelling and filmmaking community. It is designed to deepen and clarify your approach to working in a group or as a team. If you have a project at any stage of development this process will change how you work TOGETHER.
The two day process will focus on the core tenets of innovative collaboration. A robust progression of exercises will lead the participants through an exploration of internal and external listening, the power of feedback and the clarity required when goal setting. The workshop will involve both group and individual exercises. A notepad and paper are required! Come alone or with your collaborators. This is an opportunity to professionally develop yourself.
Brita McVeigh’s working methodology has, since 2005, contributed to the development and production of more than 140 feature film, short film, television and theatre projects in New Zealand and Australia.
