FrameWork supports emerging talents with individually tailored tools for development, financing and marketing. 9 creative teams – composed of writer, director and producer – are selected to enter the programme, which lasts from July to November 2015. FrameWork focuses both on artistic & creative aspects and on production strategies through 2 residential workshops.
Close dialogue and individual meetings will help participants to define their project’s aims and needs, in order to strengthen its strong points and resources. Intense script and project development enhance the projects in reaching the production stage. TorinoFilmLab will support each team to realize the most suitable production strategy.
Participants will have the chance to meet various guest trainers, experts in the main areas of filmmaking: script, directing, image, sound, post-production, etc.
In 2014, trainers included director Pawel Pawlikowski, film fund executive Katriel Schory, sales agent Eric Schnedecker, producers Jason Resnick, Stefano Tealdi, and Jean des Forêts, sound designer Jaime Baksht, director of photography Maria Secco, post-production supervisor Niko Remus, script consultants Edgar San Juan, Franz Rodenkirchen and Marietta von Hausswolff von Baumgarten.
These different approaches help participants to view their project from many angles, raising awareness on its potential and thus defining a consistent working plan. The diversity of trainers guarantees a tailored and updated method, so to fit the diversities and specificities of each project at best.
FrameWork foresees the public presentation of all projects in front of hundreds of industry professionals during theTFL Meeting Event in November 2015, during the Torino Film Festival. On this occasion an international Jury will award some projects with a number of Production Awards. In addition, the attending industry professionals will assign an Audience Award.
