For the very first time, fledgling scene scrawlers and accomplished act scribblers get the screenwriting talk they always wanted. From Syd Field to Blake Snyder, Vogler to McKee, Seger to Hauge and Parker to Aristotle – here’s a two-hour master class from screenwriter, poet and composer Martin Kiszko, that will navigate you through the landscape of screenwriting structure.
Stopping off at 11 of the world’s greatest screenwriting gurus, the talk will examine their models and approach to what makes the perfect movie narrative. This is a golden opportunity to understand the work of some of the world’s greatest story consultants and transplant their techniques to your fingertips.
Whether you want to base your work on the template of one, some or all of these screenwriting wizards, this talk will also unpick key screenplay narrative elements in the context of a popular movie and demonstrate how the very best narrative decisions are made.
There will also be the opportunity for some Live Pitching at this event.
Who is this for?
Anyone looking to write their first screenplay, improve a draft, or polish a completed script. Martin has previously given this talk to audiences in London to great acclaim. He offers fresh insight to story form for those who already have a preferred approach, and an invaluable oversight for those who are still new to the discipline.
Martin has had screenplays optioned and his screenplay The Bell was nominated as Best Brit Screenplay by the UK Film Council in 2005. He wrote and directed the short ITV drama Steps starring Oscar nominee Ron Moody. Apart from his extensive industry experience, Martin has also been a judge for The Pitch short film competition.
