We are pleased to have had an opportunity to invite two famous lecturers from Columbia University to the DFFB as part of our Talent Transference exchange programme.
Over the last two weeks Brendan Ward, screenwriter and Professor at Columbia University, has analysed screenplays, taking four films as examples, in his seminar “Script to Screen” How do the action and the screenplay influence the way in which a film tells a story?
Michael Hausmann, producer and Professor at Columbia University, used case studies to present an analysis of his own films. The issues he addressed included workflows, development, budgets, creating a team, location scouting, and shooting the film, as well as post-production and exploitation.
And there was a study visit to the set of Ken Scott’s “The Business Trip” too.
