What is "EKRAN+"?
EKRAN + is a 22-day project based professional training programme, primarily designed for directors/writer-directors, focusing on the vision of their future film. This 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 at advancing participants’ treatments/scripts and producing 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 consultancy with tutors
• Shooting; tutors’ directing consultancies
• 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 shooting with expertise and help from casting directors, set designers and production managers.
