Start a brand-new Short, or solve the problems of your current one, in this intensively hands-on workshop. Great Shorts tend to have memorable characters, a strong cinematic palette and, above all, a satisfying plot. This is difficult to pull off.
Working alone, in pairs and in groups you will: make sure you’ve created an ‘intense’ world for your story; design clear, strong characters that can be represented with instant visual clues; experiment with form, and style; and work on your plot. Writing a 120pp feature-length script can be daunting so take some time out to write a Short. Not only is it more likely you’ll get the script finished, you’ll also stand a greater chance of getting it made and seen. Requiring all the writing disciplines and film-making savvy of the feature film, with the extra challenge of conveying an entire narrative arc in a short space of time, when it works the resulting film can be stunning.
