EKRAN+ is a 22-day project-based professional training programme, primarily designed for directors/writer-directors, and focusing on the vision of their future film. Their vision is elaborated 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:
  • Treatment and / or script development; group and individual work on scripts and / or treatments.
  • 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.
