SHORT FILM MAKING
W ould you like to create a short film FOCUSED ON RARE DISEASES but you don’t know how to do it and where to start from? Are you ready to do it with us?
Uno sguardo raro sguardo raro launches the first edition of Uno sguardo raro lab: an intensive scriptwriting workshop for the production of a short film focused on rare diseases.
THE WORKSHOP WILL TAKE PLACE IN 3 STAGES:
Launch of the contest at Auditorium Arte della Roma Lazio Film Commission, inside the Rome Film Festival. Those interested in participating to the contest must send to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 20, 2019 an unpublished subject for a short film about a rare disease in any genre and from different points of view.
During the festival Uno Sguardo Raro 2020, the authors of the best 6 subjects will be announced, and will be allowed to participate, ABSOLUTELY FREE OF CHARGE, in the intensive screenwriting course. Dates and timetables of the workshop will be communicated during the Festival. Each one of the selected participants will be able to work on the writing of a screenplay on the theme, directed by screenwriters and directors, at the school Roma Fabbrica Artistica and with the collaboration and testimony of Associations of rare sick patients and communication experts.
The best screenplay will be awarded with the full production of a short film that will be promoted by Uno Sguardo Raro.
T his workshop’s purpose is to foster audio-visual production focused on rare diseases; to help patients’ associations and pharmaceutical companies to have a highly professional reference point for the realization and promotion of relevant messages through the audio-visual product; and to help young authors and directors who want to learn how to write and shoot a short film for a social purpose, maintaining a balance between their creative sensibility, the indications provided by the companies involved in the project and the true stories of patients suffering from rare diseases.
The approach is intensive, practical and focused on the individual projects to realize: from the concept to the script, from the characters to the screenplay.
