This looks exciting. Making Development Work, a participatory workshop for story editors, screenwriters and producers will be held March 1-5, 2017 in Kingston, Jamaica, and March 8-12, 2017, in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. The British Council, working in partnership with the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival, Jamaica Film and Television Association (JAFTA) and JAMPRO Film Commission (JAMPRO) is pleased to announce and invite applications for workshops aimed at script editors, screenwriters and producers working in film in Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.
Each workshop will bring together up to fifteen film professionals, split across three roles: story editors, screenwriters and producers.
Check out the detailed description on the site, but, here’s just a preview:
The workshop, to be led by Ludo Smolski, will cover key issues common to script development and the role of the script editor, including: script analysis: character, premise, structure, genre and craft; creation of development notes and script reports; constructive critical feedback – how to give it, how to take it; project pitching as a development tool; the creative triangle: best working practices for script editors, screenwriters and producers working together; and writing to budget: how development relates to the broader industry
