The film directors journey begins with the screenplay. How we connect with and gain insight into the story on the page greatly influences the impact of the film we make. Once we have a vision of the film we also need to make sure we can communicate this to our other collaborators effectively and with the knowledge that the script supports our choices. In order to organise his or her directorial thoughts a director needs to understand the fine art of script analysis. For the writer/director this is doubly necessary. It is all too easy to assume our team understands the story that we know so well. Unless they are psychic or know you intimately this is unlikely to be the case. Learn how to extract the important knowledge you have buried in your brain to help others help you. In this weekend workshop we will look at practical and dynamic approaches to working with the screenplay with a view to sharing our vision with others and in addition develop multi-layered and more engaging storytelling skills as a director.
