Understand the basics of storytelling in cinema, develop cinematic characters, and experiment with multiple story plots in this weekend workshop on story writing. If you have a story in your heart that you are passionate about, this is the workshop you should be attending. By the end of the course, the students will be expected to submit a 10-page story outline of film developed from an original idea of their own. This workshop is integrated into the Screenwriting Diploma program. On completion of the Creative Writing course students can choose to continue training in Screenwriting skills by extending their participation into the Diploma Programme.
This workshop is conducted by acclaimed writer screenwriter Mayur Puri. Mayur Puri has donned many hats over his decade long Bollywood career as director, film writer, lyricist and actor, but he primarily is and always remain a passionate story teller at heart – a role he’d never grow out of. Mayur is a leading game changer responsible for the localization, trans-creation and adaptations of various Hollywood films into Hindi translated blockbusters. He is the apt example of the small town boy from Ahmedabad, who made it big in Bollywood through sheer conviction and hard work. He is the man chosen by big ticket studios like Disney and Warner Brothers to recreate their billion dollar cinematic experiences into regional translations better suited for the Hindi speaking Indian audience.
