Open Lecture!
The programme includes an event open to local professionals:

Ludo Smolski – Mentor’s Approaches
The British development consultant and script editor will lecture about script development practice from the mentor’s viewpoint, based on his 20-year work experience in the field:
Making Development Work – resolving the conflict between logic and emotion in the development process
It all starts with the script, but how do you approach the task of developing it? Screenwriting is a skilful art that requires patience, organisation and a lot of dedication, so how can the writer be best served to keep the project moving forward? What defines good script development practice (and bad), and what are the tools needed to help a project across the finish line?
Ludo’s lecture will be followed by a networking reception for participants and local film professionals hosted by Creative Europe Desk München.
