Seminar description

Some skills cannot be taught by textbooks, especially not if the aim is to innovate. Yet, as we all know, to break rules we need to know them. Or, is it as simple as that? We can also question if there are any rules to break, or do you have to set them yourself?

In this course, you will learn the basics of screenwriting, examine dramaturgy as an enquiry of space and time, how to develop characters and write convincing dialogues. Furthermore, we will explore the relationship between the written material and the actual filmmaking process.

Besides this, there will also be the possibility to present and discuss your own projects in the group. The course will be held in English and German.
