Summary
The workshop combines two main ideas: Storytelling for the screen (short format) and working with guest actors. We’ll look at what goes into a short screenplay, discussing the basics of what works and look at an award-winning short script together focusing on character. Later in the day, actors will discuss these characters.

Full Description

This workshop is for anyone who wants to get their creative juices flowing and experience the excitement that brings: students on drama, creative writing or media production courses; anyone who wants to explore and express their ideas and skills in writing, directing & acting.

This is a very versatile workshop, adjusting to suit the desires and needs of the those who attend. Participants are encouraged to discuss a short story concept of their own but this isn’t essential. We encourage beginners in film as well as the more experienced. It is a collaborative, social environment. We will debate what commissioners might like and what stories might have audience appeal. Writing exercises are optional and group discussions are offered.

This FILM WORKSHOP is run by award winning writer/director Rachel Tillotson: “Many people find that by the end of the day they feel more confident in choices with script and direction. We are open to discussing your ideas, for example you might have a story but you never have written a script before. Role playing a casting scenario with actors can be a part of the learning process. There is a chance to get feedback from the actors as well as have a general discussion on collaborative techniques and casting.”

Above all this workshop is for anyone who wants to get their creative juices flowing and experience the excitement that brings: students on drama, creative writing or media production courses and anyone who wants to develop skills that bring benefits to the personal and work areas of their life. The workshop combines two main ideas: Storytelling for the screen (short format) and working with actors. The workshop is tightly structured and writing exercises are integrated into the day. We look at what goes into a short screenplay, discussing the basics of what works and also look at an award-winning short script together focusing on character.

Strange Delights runs workshops led by award winning filmmakers and talented actors who strive to challenge traditional ways of thinking about creativity and storytelling. We run film and drama workshops on a range of ideas, our passion is to help you gain confidence and to help new voices be heard and to help fears be overcome. We believe in self-actualisation. Our workshops are very inclusive and collaborative. They are social and busy, creative and fun.
