Off-Script: Creating Drama Through Improvisation with Robert Marchand (AUS)

EVENT: Wed 27 August, 6-7pm, Nga Taonga Sound and Vision (formerly The Film Archive), WGTN

Wellington Writers' Room with Australian director and academic  Robert Marchand. Robert will talk to story advisor and acting coach  Brita McVeigh about the relationship between filmmakers and actors in the process of character-based improvisation.

Emerging filmmakers can feel bound by the orthodoxy of the filmmaking process. How can writers and directors get to the heart of the story by engaging their actors earlier on in the process? This discussion is aimed at writers and directors, as well as actors.

Join us from 5:30pm for a glass of wine and stay afterwards for a slice of  Heaven Woodfire Pizza on us.
