At this workshop writers & actors will meet each other and begin the creative process. The aim of the day is to develop a viable, interesting idea for a short film.

As Writers, we need to create:

  • A relationship with the actors – ie decide who we want to work with. To do this, we will find out as much as we can about each other.
  • We will meet the characters that the actors have developed – gathering the information to make character profiles. We can film this
  • Discuss scenarios – what situation will we put the characters in? Our job is to keep this visual, The actors job is to make it believable.
  • Workshop these ideas in front of the camera – it is important that we see how the performance might work in front of the camera and capture mistakes that might well be good.

At teh end of the day, you will have:

  • Actors Contact detials
  • Characters
  • Story
  • Treatment
  • Script ideas
