One day scriptwriting workshop on 3rd October

Soulpen invites you to bring an idea. We will transform it into a scene.

Scriptwriting : The beauty of the audio-visual.

Script-writing is a branch of creative writing. Most of us have grown up watching movies and dreaming. Our dreams are influenced by the movies we love. And movies are made of dreams that are actualized. A script is a movie on paper.

All you need is an idea. An inner feeling. Manifesting this inner feeling into an audiovisual story is the process of writing a script.

The art and craft of visual storytelling has some elementary concepts that need to be internalized. The format. The plot. Importance of conflict. Characterization. Structure. And last, the weave. Or flow.

If you have an inner feeling which glimmers now and then, if you feel that your dream can to be told on a screen, sign up for an introduction to the fundamentals of scriptwriting. We will transform your idea into a scene.

(After this workshop, I will be announcing a two-month weekend film-making workshop in Bangalore).

Venue: Times of India, MG road, Bangalore.

Online option is available. In case you live out of Bangalore, you can still attend the workshop through skype. You will be able to see and hear us, we will see you and hear you too. Mail me at to register for the online option.

Schedule: 3rd October, 10 am to 6 pm ( Just before the lunch break, for about fifteen minutes, we will be doing some stretches : standing yoga postures. This is optional, but highly recommended by the muse.)
