Advanced Development Workshop for ACE in Paris

The Story-Type Method® European tour continues!

I’ve just done my 3-day Advanced Development Workshop for sixteen experienced feature film producers gathering in Paris from all over Europe (Turkey, Germany, France, Norway, Italy, Serbia, UK, Denmark, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Belgium), and followed-up with a day and a half of one on one meetings to discuss five of the projects.

I had a great time and really enjoyed working with this group of passionate creative producers. Many thanks to the ACE Team for another successful edition of this development workshop.

Testimonials for the ACE Producers 3-day Advanced Development Workshop

Very inspiring and thoughtful.

One of the best workshops regarding script structure I’ve attended. It really makes you review and research what you know about books like Mckee, Field etc. The books that I’ve been related to at my studies. Really enjoyed it and will try to convey it to my work with films I produce and students I tutor. Very inspiring and thoughtful. Thank you Emmanuel! [Advanced Development Workshop (ACE 26)]

Impressive knowledge!

I had the pleasure to attend two of Emmanuel’s workshops. His knowledge about the different screenwriting approaches is impressive and enables him to recombine and rethink them to a new approach. I highly appreciate his work no matter if you already know a lot about screenplays or not. [Advanced Development Workshop (ACE 27)]

The most inspiring developing session I have ever taken part in.

Without doubt the most inspiring developing session I have ever taken part in. Emmanuel is not only a very good speaker – but manages to use practical examples and group discussion to give the participants a very clear understanding of his thoughts on drama. Less dogmatic than McKee and Field he aims at giving the creative a tool box of dramatic elements rather than a formula for success. I strongly recommend this workshop to both writers, producers and funding bodies. Well done! [Advanced Development Workshop (ACE 26)]

A really useful and inspiring seminar!

Thanks for a really useful and inspiring seminar – I have attended a number of development training courses in the past, so wasn’t sure whether I would learn very much that was new. As it happens, I learned a huge amount and feel much more confident about going back into the development process with a brand new toolbox. [Advanced Development Workshop (ACE 24)]
