Do you have an idea for a plot, but you don’t know how to turn it into a movie script? We invite you to a virtual screenwriting course with the co-author of “Corpus Christi” and “The Hater”.
During the online meetings, Mateusz will share the original working methods and observations on screenwriting with the participants. The scriptwriter will look at participant’s story ideas and help develop them into feature-length films.
All participants will have the opportunity to probe out their intuitions with their tutor and each other in a workshop format. The group will work on:
- a plot synopsis,
- a ladder and detailed treatment
- and a key dialogue scene in every project.
