From spirituality to inspiration
One of the most common questions that people ask when writing scripts is: Where does inspiration come from?
Actually, once we have learned ourselves on a spiritual level, we can explore an endless supply of ideas. How can we explore our own spirituality in real life? How do we think on a deeper level? What should we do to feel? Inspirations arise from the bits and pieces we pick up in daily life. The course will introduce methods that can be applied to collect experiences in life for the development of script, character, and details of the story environment.
