LETTER FROM THE SCREENWRITING WORKSHOP LEADER TO APPLICANTS

By the nature of my work often I have to read new scripts and consider their launching into production. It happens that they bring me scripts with the words “I want you to stage this!” In many cases, I don’t want to run such scripts, install them or even just read them.

The question is not only in the profound lack of professionalism of the writers and not only in their “greatest ambitions.” Sometimes one gets the impression that a person has learned to put words together and already considers it possible to shoot movies from his recordings. To my great regret, I must call this phenomenon the name it deserves – “Aggressive Amateurishness.”

Screenwriter is an incredibly deep and responsible profession! It has its own laws, its limitations and its differences from literature. Although, it also has a lot in common. I would like to share all the accumulated thoughts on this matter at the Master – classes that we are launching at Focus School.

We will devote a minimum of time to theory and most to practice. I am not going to engage in training and educational programs – therefore I invite only people who write. Your profession or education is not important to me.  The most important for me is that you know how to write.

Writing, performing tasks, discussing them, “treating” scenarios is the main goal of our project. As a result, you will write ten works, including even a script based on a classic work. And the main task will be to create a script for a short film. The range of issues that we are going to touch upon is large – it is impossible to cover it “in one sitting”. You will learn about all this in detail by coming to the Screenwriting Workshop.
