CALL: 3-day Advanced Development Workshop by Emmanuel Oberg

11th, 12th, 13th of June 2019 in Amsterdam

EXTENDED DEADLINE for applications is May 12th 2019

After the tremendous success last year, the 3-day Advanced Development Workshop by Emmanuel Oberg comes to Amsterdam again! It offers a unique possibility for experienced screenwriters, directors and story editors working in the Netherlands to up their game in writing.

Based on the innovative Story-Type Method, this workshop leaves aside rigid rules that lead to predictable screenplays. It also steers clear of supposed formulas for commercial success, which simply don't exist (or we'd know!).

The aim of the workshop is to equip filmmakers with a set of storytelling tools that help develop each project as effectively as possible. It details how filmmakers can identify the story-type of their projects as early as possible and adjust the development process accordingly, making it easier, faster and hopefully leading to stronger screenplays.

The workshop puts a strong emphasis on each project reaching the widest possible audience, both at home and abroad, without compromising the filmmakers' creative integrity. After the workshop, the course documentation is made available online, and you will receive the book.

A maximum of 18 participants will be selected for this workshop and the applicants must confirm their full availability for the entire 3-day workshop. The workshop takes place in Amsterdam, 11-13 June.The working language is English.

Participation fee
The participation fee for selected applicants is € 400,00 per person.

For up to four participants, there is a possibility for a one-on-one meeting on Friday the 14th of June with your project, for an additional fee of € 300,00, and for which you have to apply separately.

How to apply
You can send your application for the workshop (and for the one-on-one meeting, if applicable) together with a motivational letter and your CV to [email protected].

(EXTENDED) DEADLINE for applications is May 12th 2019

The applicants will be selected by a commission consisting of a representation from ACE Producers, the Netherlands Film Fund and Emmanuel Oberg. The selected participants will be announced in the week of May 22nd.
