March Madness
Scriptwriting-preparation Workshop

This course will be held within the functions of Scriptdock, however, in a separate, for participants only version. This means only course participants will have access to reading and posting pages.

  1. You will be invited to read a filmed and award winning script. We can all learn from the best and it is immensely inspiring!

    (There will be 4 German and 4 English scripts to choose from. Yes, you can join if you write in English.)

  2. Read it and write this scripts log-line. Upload and discuss this log-line within the course, compare your version with others from the class.

    Even if a brilliant, unique script is usually all about tonality, there is often a correlation between the tone and the concept. To search for this helps to master functioning concepts and worthwhile log-lines.

  3. Write a new scene for that script. Try to get into the specific tone and voice of it.
You can send the established characters into another plot line, a prequel or a sequel of the original script.You practice to write a 2-3 page dynamic, completed scene. This is our craft and what needs to be convincing: Dialogues! Scenes! Turning points!

  4. Upload this scene into the course-TrockenDock; read a scene of a colleague and comment on it constructively. Screenwriting is always re-writing. To execute an idea towards its maximum potential. One can’t practice this often enough.
