exploring creativity

EKRAN+ is a 22-day project-based professional training programme in three sessions, primarily designed for directors/writer-directors, focusing on the vision of their future film and tailoring them for the future audience. This vision is developed through the combination of three major elements: the script, the audiovisual components and the collaboration with the other professionals involved in the shooting of the film.

EKRAN+ focuses participants on exploring, identifying and refining the tone and visual language of film. EKRAN+ aims to advance participants’ treatments/scripts and produce two scenes from each script/ treatment.

Every participating project is represented by a Creative Team consisting of a director (or writer/director), a writer (or co-writer), a director of photography and producer.

The EKRAN+ process includes:
  • Preparation for shooting; casting, storyboard and individual consultancies with tutors.
  • Shooting; tutors’ shooting expertise and help from casting directors, set designers and production managers.
  • Editing; consultancies with a supervisor.
  • Evaluation; group and tutor analysis of the produced scenes.

The creative team (director, screenwriter, and producer) are offered a choice of locations, actors and set design within the usual logistical and budgetary constraints. EKRAN+ supports the shooting with the help and expertise of casting directors, set designers and production managers.
EKRAN+ focuses participants on exploring, identifying and refining the tone and visual language of film. EKRAN+ aims at advancing participants’ treatments/scripts and producing two scenes from each script/ treatment.

The first scene is produced with 2-3 (Polish) actors and DOPs speaking English, whereas for the second scene (produced in their native language), participants invite DOP and two actors from their native country.

Participants can return for an optional follow-up session for the final script consultancy and to draw up the advanced draft before they enter the production phase.
