A New York based writer/director/filmmaker, Paul Knox visited Jagran Lakecity University and interacted with students from School of Media and Communication. He is a master in teaching screenwriting.
Mr. Knox believes that today, Indian Cinema aims at making a blockbuster where we review a film in terms of the money collection but he feels sad when he sees people walking out of the theater wondering there was no good story in the entire movie and it was such a waste of time and money.
With the concept of storytelling in mind, he takes workshops at various places focusing on Script writing. His idea of workshop is: "Anyone who has a story that they believe will make a great film and the desire to put in the work to write it is welcome to apply. The workshop will enable serious and committed individuals to write a well structured, professionally formatted, three-act feature-length screenplay that reflects their voice and vision, and will make them a part of a community of writers adept at sharing supportive, constructive feedback towards strengthening their work. The process oriented workshop will take participants through story formulation, building structure, establishment of setting, character development, creation of dialogue, use of proper formatting and ultimately, writing scenes. Various screenwriting texts will be referenced, and a series of exercises developed for the workshop will be practiced."
We are looking forward to have him at our campus frequently to interact with our students through his his amazing workshops and sessions.
