Tales from the Writers Gym

INTERACTIVE LECTURE
Where do ideas come from? How can I develop them into stories? How do I stay fresh and playful? Can I exercise my imagination? How do I get better as a writer? What can I do when I am stuck?

For fifteen years Ellis Freeman has been holding the Writers Gym, a workshop in creative screenwriting in search of the answers to these very questions. The class is a playful exploration, designed to stimulate the creative brain and exercise our story-making muscles. Here, he shares the lessons he has learnt from his experiences.

LECTURE - THE ARE OF COLLABORATION
A lecture with VINCA WIEDEMANN on creative collaborations / processes and how to create a good working climate from the screenwriters point of view.

The vast majority of film development processes are collective processes, and as the media develops, collaboration takes place in increasingly complex teams. How can this be an advantage for the artistic process? What does it take to achieve a successful collaboration where there is room for both singularity, creativity, deadlines, fragility and doubt?

Vinca Wiedemann will talk about this based on her own observations and experiences through her collaborations with a large number of hellish, vain and sensitive film people.

Wednesday 29 January

JOHN YORKE
INTO THE WOODS – How stories work and why we tell them

Date & Time: Wednesday 29 January, 13:00-16:30 (incl. coffee break)
Venue: Visual Arena, Lindholmspiren 3-5

LECTURE
In his bestselling book Into the Woods, John Yorke argues that story structure is hardwired into human perception: all stories are essentially the same because they reflect the way in which we make sense of the world.

What is this deep-rooted story DNA? Put simply, a hero meets their opposite, assimilates it and is changed. Every story, at some level, follows this pattern – whether in a video game, novel or brand story. It’s the natural way that the human brain interprets and organises information. In Into the Woods, John uses examples gathered over his 30-year career studying and teaching five-act story structure while making film and TV drama watched by millions of people around the globe.

Into the Woods is just not a how-to book for scriptwriters. It is a philosophical approach to communicating more effectively, in a way that resonates with the deepest part of the human psyche – through story.

The lecture includes
Structure and Writers Rooms - How structural theory works in the real world. The mechanics of Writers Rooms and how they fit into a larger chain of production.  Touching on how giving notes, feedback and best behaviours.

Television Structure - The rules of television structure how technology has transformed the way we tell stories and how television has learned to manipulate structure for both economic and artistic end. From old fashioned series and serials, to modern Closed Season arcs – we explore just how modern television drama works – includes brief practical exercise.
