NOSTOS SCREENWRITING RETREAT

"We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect."
Anais Nin

The script is the ‘arena’ where ideas get processed, characters are designed and shaped, the story details and events are imagined, and the environment for personages to manifest themselves is created: With all their psychological, emotional and social layers. An important part is played by the ending which, in its aim to serve a turning point to the story, surprise the viewer or make them contemplate about what they have just witnessed, is supposed to reveal the layers of meanings and ‘score’ the main emotion of the film. This is why the script is so important: It will dictate the rank achieved by the subject of the film on the scale of its maximum potential. The script is the first element that can elevate or degrade a film.This 3 week screenwriting workshop will take the participants through the process of creating the script for a feature film or Tv Pilot. It is designed for beginners as well as seasoned screenwriters, who need a place to focus and get feedback and one on one mentorship on their ideas.
