WRITING FOR THE SCREEN 

Also called script-writing is the art and craft of writing scripts for mass media such as feature films, or television productions. It is frequently a freelance profession. Screenwriters are responsible for researching the story, developing the narrative, writing the screenplay, and delivering it, in the required format, to development executives. Screenwriters therefore have great influence over the creative direction and emotional impact of the screenplay and, arguably, of the finished film. They either pitch original ideas to producers in the hope that they will be optioned or sold, or screenwriters are commissioned by a producer to create a screenplay from a concept, true story, existing screen work or literary work, such as a novel, poem, play, comic book or short story. If you want to know all the Ins and Outs and become a better Script writer,

  THEN THIS CLASS IS FOR YOU... It runs just after the acting workshop for 3 days, from Wednesday the 7th till 9th Oct. 2015. This workshop will be facilitated by Tafor Atem Kmchwang & Harry Kale and its completely FREE for all Actors/Actresses and interested parties to attend. FREE!!

PRODUCTION DESIGN
 CINEMATOGRAPHY

Learn more about the fundamental questions Cinematographers and Production Designers ask themselves or the decisions they make so as to perform their functions with success during the three day ArtCity Film Festival workshop.

These are two aspects of filmmaking that are fundamental in the process of transforming a film script to a visual aesthetic and a motion picture.

A film Director’s hopes and communicates his/her vision to two major heads of departments; the Cinematographer and the Production Designer, who bring in their own ideas and skills to render his / her vision to aesthetic motion pictures that come close to attaining stark verisimilitude.

ð  The Production Designer is the head of the art department which has positions such as set designer and art director. He/she controls the entire mise-en-scène and crafts the visual look of the environment, which is then photographed by the Cinematographer. He/she makes a series of negotiations: extravagance against abstinence, realism against imagination, practical against impractical, etc.

ð  The Cinematographer is the head of the camera and light department which has positions such as camera operators and lighting director, who are responsible for conveying emotion and meaning through the images that they create.

        He/she is the person who gives a film the visual signature it deserves.
