Script to Screen presents a one-day screenwriting workshop for both emerging and experienced filmmakers of Dunedin.
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.)
When: Saturday 9 March, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Where: Petridish, 8 Stafford St, Dunedin
Cost: General Admission $23 (incl. GST) or Student/Unwaged $11.50 (incl. GST). Tickets available via Eventbrite
What to Bring: Pen and paper. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided. There are cafes in the area.
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).
