The art of cinematic storytelling-a script-writing workshop by national award-winning filmmaker Satyanshu Singh
Storytelling for a cinema not only includes a great script, but also has a gripping screenplay, which has a spellbinding effect. A terrific visual storytelling with a power-packed script makes a great spectacle for the viewers. Dialogues, without any visual narrative, often fail to capture the imagination of viewers.
Writers and directors rely on the cinematic tools for telling their stories. Be it sound, motion, various camera angles, positioning the camera in unorthodox positions to take the perfect shot, these are the essential ammunition in the director’s arsenal. Some scenes carry the whole message which is intended.
Some scenes are so well thought out that even though they involve less dialogues, the visual emotions portrayed by the actors take them to a whole new level. A director has to possess the art of combining dialogues and emotions as a perfect mix.
You can name very few directors with great screenplay expertise Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction), Christopher Nolan (Dark Knight, Interstellar) in Hollywood, Rajkumar Hirani’s (3 idiots, Munna Bhai MBBS), Sanjay Leela Bhansali (Devdas) in Bollywood. These directors present their story in such a way that the viewer can be part of their journey, with every scene he can relate to and every emotion he feels.
Satyanshu Singh is a filmmaker who can be placed on the same dais as the above mentioned much-acclaimed filmmakers. Satyanshu after finishing his MBBS degree from Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) switched to filmmaking as a career. After his critically acclaimed script for a Hindi feature film ‘Udaan’ (got him National Award) and lyrics from the movie ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari (2011)’, he joined hands with his brother Devanshu for a short film ‘Tamaash’ (the puppet) which received rave reviews from global film festivals.
So if you want to do something adventurous in movies of a different kind which relies more on script, rather than masala flicks, here is an opportunity to learn the nuances of visual storytelling, creating stories which have high potential – create stories from small incidents of daily life under the direct guidance of award-winning director Satyanshu Singh. You can develop your own story for the next two months with Satyanshu mentoring your filmmaking debut.
