TFL Extended - Story Editing 2022

ABOUT TFL EXTENDED – STORY EDITING:

TFL Extended – Story Editing is a hands-on training workshop for film professionals willing to accompany writers and directors in the development of their fiction feature projects.

5 participants will be selected to work in a group guided by a tutor, who has wide international experience as a script consultant.

Participants 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 treatment, helping them find the core of their story and encouraging a script loyal to the intention of the writer and/or director.

Participants will also learn and experiment how to shape and phrase feedback, written or oral, taking into account the project holder’s psychological aspect.

TFL Extended 2022 is organised thanks to the partnerships with Comunidad de Madrid and Ayuntamiento de Madrid.
