Oscar winner Chris Dickens will be in conversation with writer and director Chris Jones to discuss how the screenplay evolves from page, to set, to post production. Illustrated with clips, this session offers insight into how a director and actors interpret words, how that footage is then re-imagined with the director and editor in collaboration, and how the final results can often be quite different from the screenplay.

Discovering how much is often trimmed in the edit will give you confidence to cut more of your own script, learning the art of saying more with less, which in the end, is the sign of good writing.

This promises to be a fascinating and insightful session.
