Mountain Words Festival
“Screenwriting with a Sense of Place” workshop with Alessandra Bautze
Sunday, May 28
9 - 10:30 am
In this 90-minute screenwriting workshop appropriate for all levels, writers will learn the basics of screenwriting while focusing on how to create a sense of place. Attention will be paid to excerpts from adapted screenplays with a strong sense of place and their source material. Texts to be examined may include Winter’s Bone (Debra Granik, 2009), based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell, and Brokeback Mountain (Ang Lee, 2005), based on the short story by Annie Proulx. Writers will put what they’ve learned into practice by generating a scene (either original or an adaptation of their own work).
