ABOUT

ScriptLab – story editing is a hands-on training for film professionals who want to work with writers and directors in the development stage of their fiction feature film projects. The aim of the programme is to provide an insight into the development process of a feature film – focusing on the early scriptwriting stage.

Each of the 5 selected participants joins a specific group, which involves 4 projects and is guided by a tutor with a wide international experience as a script consultant, who acts as a mentor to the story editor trainee.
 

TARGET PARTICIPANTS

Film professionals from all over the world interested in being trained as story editors or in gaining an insight into the script development process, working with scriptwriters and directors in the writing and development of their fiction feature film scripts.
 

PROGRAMME

Throughout the year the projects, which in general begin the programme in a treatment stage, are developed through the enriching experience of sharing this creative stage of the writing process with the other filmmakers in the group. To complement the peer to peer conversations, there are 1:1 sessions with the tutor and story editor trainee as the project advances.

The story editor trainees will acquire skills in the fields of treatment and script analysis, assessment of project development and script consulting. More concretely, they will gain insight and training in working with writers, from an idea up to a professional draft of the script, helping them find the core of their story and encouraging a script loyal to the intention of the writer and/or director.

In addition, professionals active in the fields of development & production will meet with the participants along the programme to assess the progress of their work and to give them broader advice on their careers.

A final presentation of the projects during the TFL Meeting Event in November concludes and completes the training: the ScriptLab – story editing participants present themselves and have the opportunity to network with an audience of international producers, sales agents and other film industry professionals, and are granted visibility thanks to the TFL Catalogue.
