EKRAN+: The European Project-Based Training Programme for Directors
EKRAN+, organised by Wajda Studio and Wajda School Poland, is a visual laboratory focusing on the creative pre-production process and based on shooting practice. The participants explore, identify and refine the tone and visual language of their film in a safe space. This programme also offers directors the unique opportunity to receive direct feedback on their work on set.
The programme is divided into three sessions of two to nine days and includes:
• Treatment and/or script development
• Preparation for shooting
• Shooting (one scene is produced from each script)
• Evaluation: group and tutor analyses of the produced scenes
The creative teams (director, screenwriter and producer) are offered a choice of locations, English- speaking actors and set design within the usual logistical and budgetary limits.
At the end of the programme, each team will have a well-developed treatment or a first draft of a script, and one scene, presenting the tone, genre and visual language of the project.
Thanks to FOCAL’s partnership with Wajda Studio, one Swiss team((director, screenwriter and producer) is selected and can participate in the programme.
