Time, space and freedom are important ingredients for a creative project, but how do filmmakers find a way to focus within the daily grind? Often, working with a collaborator or consultant who help to keep you inspired, productive, and challenged is the key. In what part of the screen writing process should filmmakers consult script editors and get feedback from industry experts? And what are the benefits to getting outside opinions and how do you maintain a clear sense of what you're developing? Three filmmakers, Sebastián Lelio (Gloria), Alistair Banks Griffin (Two Gates of Sleep) and José Luis Valle (Workers), all selected for the Berlinale Residency 2013 and presenting their newly developed films at this year’s Berlinale Co-Production Market, will discuss their experiences working collaboratively with consultants during the project support programme.
Kathi co-heads the Berlinale Co-Production Market, and is the coordinator of the Talent Project Market and the Berlinale Residency. She is the author of “Drehbuch reloaded”, her PhD thesis on unconventional contemporary screenplays.
