COMD Workshop With Vancouver Film School

The Department of Communication and Design is partnering with the Vancouver Film School (VFS) to offer a two-day intensive workshop, “From Script to Screen,” to be held October 30-31 at FADA foyer.

In this two-day program, students will discover the essential components of successful cinematic storytelling through lectures, workshops, and assigned exercises. On day one, guided by VFS industry instructors, students will learn about the basics of story, screenwriting, acting and directing. On day two, students will have the opportunity to apply these key concepts to their own moving master film projects. Working in groups of four or five, they will serve as cast and crew to execute stories they developed on the previous day. The program will conclude with a showcase of the students’ moving master films in a screening event to celebrate their work and allow them to share their stories with each other.

Instructors for the workshop will be Michael Baser, head of film and writing; Jennifer Clement, head of acting; and Bob Woolsey, instructor for production.

Those wishing to attend must register. To do so, please contact VFS Turkey representative Mert Tezel (tel. 533 624 2567; email mtezel@vfs.com).
