1. Masterclass 

Anatomy of a Good Story with Marta Parlatore

EVENT: FREE

LOCATION: LAB Conference Room

RESERVE YOUR SEAT

So many people set out to write a script or make a film but so few set out to tell a story – and this is obviously a mistake.  The initial impulse should always be to tell a great story – but what is a story and how do you go about telling one? 

In this 90-minute interactive masterclass writer, script editor and development exec Marta Parlatore, will define what a story is and analyse the essential components that go into creating a great screenplay.

You will be inspired to start thinking of yourself as belonging to an important and valued cultural phenomenon that has existed for millennia: not the screenwriter but the storyteller.
