27th SGIFF: SG Originals | Developing Screenplays in Singapore
DEVELOPING SCREENPLAYS IN SINGAPORE
CO-ORGANISED WITH NANG MAGAZINE
27 NOV 2016, SUN / 3.00PM / 90MIN
IMPORTANT TICKETING INFORMATION BELOW
The art and craft of screenwriting is one of the most little understood aspects of filmmaking. How does a writer go from an idea for a story into a fully developed screenplay that is ready for shoot? For this panel, we sit down with four experienced screenwriters, including three writer-directors, to focus on the creative process that takes place before the cameras start to roll, and explore the painstaking process of creating a film on the page. Given that most of the knowledge and literature around screenwriting originates from Hollywood, we will also be discussing screenwriting in relation to Singapore and Asia.
