From the thought image into the script 1

Kamen Stoyanov
Institute of Fine Arts and Media Art, Painting
2023W, artistic Seminar (SEK), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S03825


How do I describe the image in my head in movie script format? Trained in the fine arts, we approach the medium of film. The first step in this direction is writing for the camera.

The seminar is divided into three main areas: (1) First, we examine the basics of screenwriting: How are stories told? How do I develop an initial idea? How to write logline, step outline and treatment? What are the beats in a scene and how do I use them when writing a scene? How do I format a script and similar questions are in the foreground here. (2) Second, we will try out writing and working out our projects in writing in exercises. Pitching is also practiced here, i.e. the convincing verbal presentation of the project. (3) Third, we draw inspiration from the analysis of film examples and screenplays. The connection to the fine arts plays a particularly important role in our viewing.
