Workshop for Essay-Filmmakers – Birkbeck
A roundtable discussion and workshop for essay film practitioners and enthusiasts. The gathering aims to promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas about the screenwriting process and screenplay development for the essay-film, as part of the London Essay Film Festival.
The focus will be on processes of layering, working and re-working material, remaining flexible to facilitate moving backwards and forwards between scripting, editing and devising sound/VO. Filmmakers Romana Turina and Rebecca E. Marshall will look at this process within their completed works and how open systems of development loops can make use of both carefully planned sequences and unexpected moments.
Date of the workshop: 24th March 2018 (10 am – 1 pm).
Location: Birkbeck Cinema, 43 Gordon Square, Birkbeck School of Arts, Birkbeck London WC1H 0PD
