Plotting is arguably one of the most challenging aspects of developing a story, whether for a screenplay, novel, or another form. Why? First, because a lot has to happen – every scene or paragraph needs to advance the story in at least one way, and this requires hundreds of story beats. Second, because the plot has to hang together well, not just logically but also thematically. In this workshop, a simulated writers' room approach will help writers generate oodles of plot that they can then craft, hone, and synthesize. It will use creative screenwriting approaches to push participants to go places they would not have thought to go, ensuring that all story avenues are exhausted. It will then guide participants to find the most exciting and thematically appropriate story beats and synthesize them coherently. This is not a workshop for the faint-hearted – it requires stamina and courage!

Savor the session with complimentary coffee and snacks.

Bisa dibilang, penulisan alur cerita adalah aspek paling menantang dari pengembangan cerita, entah itu naskah layar, novel, atau bentuk lainnya. Mengapa? Pertama-tama, karena banyak hal yang harus terjadi – setiap adegan atau alinea harus bisa mendorong cerita setidaknya ke arah tertentu, dan ini mengharuskan rangkaian cerita untuk memuat ratusan perubahan. Kedua, karena alur cerita harus disandingkan bersama dengan rapih, tidak hanya secara masuk akal namun juga sesuai tema. Dalam workshop ini, pendekatan simulasi ruang penulis akan digunakan untuk membantu para penulis menciptakan banyak sekali alur yang kemudian dapat mereka buat, asah dan gabungkan. Proses ini akan menggunakan pendekatan screenwriting untuk mendorong para peserta agar dapat menemukan perubahan rangkaian cerita yang paling menarik dan cocok dengan tema agar dapat dirangkai secara koheren. Ini bukanlah workshop untuk orang-orang yang berkehendak lemah – workshop ini mensyaratkan daya tahan dan keberanian!

Nikmati sesi ini dengan kopi dan penganan gratis.
