From any SOURCE, build your slate of 6 short film ideas. Then, prepare to transform an idea into a script. Acquire and harness the key elements of STORY, knowing how to create CHARACTER, and "an ear" for believable DIALOGUE. Finally, smash the slate, to leave the best idea for scripting.
Similar courses would typically ask a writer for a single story idea. I ask SIX (And 5 of these ideas will be shelved anyway). It is not only about pushing creativity to the highest standards, the process also teaches writers how to "let go" of ideas they may have become to attached to. As a screenwriter, and director, the theory is accompanied by insight, and first-hand experience of the screenwriting process.
To empower the writer, emphasis will be on work ethic, film production, and the business of writing. TWO ASSIGNMENTS: 1. Based on the best idea from your slate, write a 1st Draft in 10 days (to be critiqued by myself). 2. Re-write, until final draft (and critiqued by me, and the group).
Does any other screenwriting course, put so much emphasis on creating a habit of "re-writing?
The dedicated goal is to develop the actor's ability to read for different roles from movie scripts of various genre. The process guides the actor naturally toward physical, intellectual and emotional character choices, authentic, and nuanced, and to the standard required to audition professionally.
I train screen actors from the perspective of someone who actually hires them for speaking roles. I have scripted directed and produced 4 feature films myself. And based in Thailand I have cast several international movies shooting here, mentored countless local talent, and given regular screen acting workshops every Sunday for the last 15 years. I know what is required of an actor auditioning for a film.
Ideally, the course should be for 1-3 students, with double classes, or at least two classes on the same day. The duration of the course should be no longer than 5 weeks (2-3 weeks would be the optimal period). Students should be prepared to "prep sides" before classes. The course is in English, because the skills are intended to prepare the actor to audition for English-language international feature films.
