NORDISKA VERKSTÄDER: Method writing med Bo Skjoldborg
Tillsammans med Finlands dramatiker och manusförfattare r.f. arrangerar Labbet i november en tvådagars verkstad med den danska författare Bo Skjoldborg. Verkstaden hålls på engelska.
METHOD WRITING with BO SKJOLDBORG (DK)
This course will teach you to use Method Writing and other log book methods to strengthen your writing process when producing treatments, loglines, manuscripts, dialogues, scenes, character descriptions etc. Method writing is the writing counterpart to Method Acting – the US version of Konstantin Stanislavski’s famous acting method.
Method Writing is characterised by two movements: inside-out and outside-in. During the course you will primarily practice the inside-out movement, to get a better, deeper and more nuanced grip on the scripts’, characters’ and movies’ different moods and emotions, including an authentic language and tone of voice.
In brief, with Method Writing you will get in touch with emotional layers and nuances in both you own personality, your characters, your plot and in your language – layers which are otherwise easily drowned out by more conscious, calculated and practical considerations.
