WORKSHOPS AND PANELS

Summary: Introduction to Screenplay is a theoretical/practical workshop whose purpose is to present elementary content on audiovisual writing and to encourage a creative and critical environment for basic practices. The course will set out, among others, concepts of image, representation and language, fundamentals of narrative, the use of mythical structures, character studies, creative styles, cohesion and criticism (as well as critical creativity). The dynamic of the gatherings will consist of a theoretical segment as well as practical exercises in narrative composition. In the end, there will be an exchange of views between the instructor and workshop participants, which hopes to establish a precious critical-creative repertoire, one which will serve as a first step in the emergence and refinement of new screenwriters.
