Sources 2 Projects & Process

Training Mentors for European Screenwriters and (Documentary) Filmmakers

Sources 2 Projects & Process is an intensive training course, which shares the Sources 2 project and process philosophy, its mentoring approach and methodology with professionals working in the field of script and story development. It offers a forum for an exchange and evaluation of experience.

The workshop is a three-month process involving three work groups of five participants, each guided by one adviser. The advisers then rotate groups, exposing the participants to a variety of mentoring approaches.
The format includes:

– Four-day workshop with group sessions, lectures and keynote discussions
– Three-month coaching period and exchange of experience in close contact with group members and advisers
– Round-off e-mail, participants receive individual advice and an evaluation from advisers

The workshop explores the process of reading, interpreting, breaking down and analysing the project; getting to know the author's processes; choosing mentoring strategies; testing and revising these strategies; mentoring the process of writing a screenplay or 'writing documentary'; developing new approaches to mentoring.

This workshop is especially geared towards professionals working as mentors for screenwriters and filmmakers in the field of story and script development (fiction and documentary), such as screenwriters, developers, consultants, script editors, producers, commissioning editors, trainers, and decision makers.
