Workshop film scenario

Almost every film that was ever made - artistic or mainstream, short of long, commercial or independent - once started its life on paper. Someone imagined the film and wrote down a recipe for the film in a scenario, using language that is visual and concise. Getting to direct films is, also in the Netherlands, a complicated process that you can’t do on the side. But there is always a demand for good scripts and film plans.

During this short workshop, I teach you the basics of telling stories using moving image, and I help you taking the first steps in developing your ideas into a film concept. If you decide to continue developing your idea into a scenario, I’m happy to give you guidance after the workshop finishes.
