Two day Auckland workshop: The Foundations of Story and Character with Gavin McGibbon

About this event

Don’t miss this interactive and practical weekend workshop that will help you navigate through the complexities of writing a feature film.

Great stories create an umbilical cord between the screen and the audience, where the audience feels everything that the character does. This workshop will look at the elements that you need to consider to build that level of engagement with your own stories.

Through writing exercises and watching clips, you will look at a wide range of aspects of story and character including how to hook an audience from the first moment they meet your protagonist, tips and tricks to making an audience connect with how your character feels, and ensuring that your stories don’t run out of momentum.

To gain the most out of the workshop, please come with a film concept in mind.

When: 9am - 5pm Saturday 27 August & 10am - 3pm Sunday 28 August

Where: Samoa House, 20 Beresford Square, Auckland CBD, Auckland 1010

Who is it for? Anyone writing a feature film
