As you may know, we filmed many of the seminars, workshops and panels at the London Screenwriters Festival, which was no small task I can tell you! Four teams, 9 HD cameras, four sound kits and four sessions a day… And that’s just the shooting! Then there was the post production. But the good news is that Chris Huang who offered up his services as editor (in order that he learn how to cut on Avid) just completed the final edit. It took him two months to complete!
We decided to share one of the sessions with you, Phil Parker on Writing For The Digital Age, to give you a snapshot of the festival. You can watch it above. You will already have been emailed a password if you are a member of our newsgroup. If not, you can get your password right now by signing up below. You will then get access to three other great interviews and seminars.
Here’s how the session was described…
Phil Parker looks at the skills of short film, and series, writing, and how they have become the essential writer’s foundations for the future.
From web series, mobile downloads, and games, TV series and feature films how does a writer write in the new digital opportunities world?
And some feedback...
‘I loved what Phil had to say and in fact he solidified what I knew, in that the digital web platform is a way to tap into not only diverse creative projects but financial gains’
‘I think Phil did an amazing job of clarifying how to create original content and make it work in short form. And of course the repetition of several video’s featuring a popular ‘character’ can catch on quickly. I think in future I’ll definitely be looking towards making content that has more potential and writing scripts ready to sell to others capeable of creating that content as well’
‘I just watched the seminar and found it fascinating… Short films made by people in their own homes that go viral are so accessible and doable yet many of us don’t even think to try it’
