ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
“Making a good script great”: in five words this title of Linda Seger’s most popular book sums up the task of the script consultant. Like any good artist or craftsperson, a screenwriter may need the support of a trained set of fresh eyes to help them deliver a successful project, especially when things get stale. Experts in the art and craft of screenwriting, script consultants work closely with writers, giving Feedback on the quality of the screenplay, suggesting improvements, or ensuring practical issues like continuity and running time. In this process, script consultants need to be constructive and diplomatic, and they should be familiar with the needs and working principles of the screenwriter. Aiming at professionals in positions working with writers in the Story development process, this five-day seminar explores all core areas of the work of a script consultant. In a mixture of lectures, case studies and exercises, topics explored range from knowledge to abilities, from screenwriting craft to communication skills.
In addition to a group of up to 15 participants, who will be actively working with scripts and excerpts provided by Linda Seger, this class is open to a limited number of interested observers.
