Who doesn't like to watch a good movie, a series, play a game, read a beautiful story, among others? Well, what all this has in common are the scripts. There is no point in a work, whatever it may be, having special effects, a great company, if the story is not well prepared.
The screenwriter is more than a key player in creating the universe. Of course there are other areas such as direction, production, technicians, among many other professionals related to the market. But you might also look up and ask yourself what games and literature have to do with screenwriters?
Everything is the answer. Games have experienced scriptwriters so they can tell the whole adventure, as with movies and series, and books, well, need to be well scripted through research and knowing how to develop the entire plot so that the plot doesn't get lost. The same work as the screenwriter.
To learn all this, which is not even the 1% of the profession, there are schools like Cinematic Ideas Factory (FIC's), from the screenwriters Newton Cannito and Mark Takeda. O Thunder Wave set up a partnership with the school, since our audience is entertainment, especially people who like to know how a work was created.
In these last 4 months, our editor in chief and also screenwriter, Daniela Carrano, has participated in the classes, so that he can, in addition to expanding his professional side, analyze the concepts of what it is and how to study in a script school.
Daniela has already participated in this period of a little more than 1 year and a half, in several courses in the area of scripts, where she realized the great lack of information there was about the area, the creation of materials, production, among others. Some had one type of information, even being positive, but owing to others.
Through FIC's, students are introduced to 8 hours a week of classes, with professionals from the sector, who present, in a didactic, professional and fun way, the script profession. They are exposed from the basics of the profession, to Pitching workshops, where they must present their scripts to teachers and companies in the area.
It's nothing simple, but neither is it a seven-headed beast. The teachers are the best the area can have in Brazil, with professionals from films and series like Basic Unit, Tainá, Castelo Rá-Tim-Bum, Two Boats, among others.
The course has several types and models and, for sure, the student will be able to choose the one that best interests him. The important thing is that FIC's manages to bring together all the mini courses into a single one, deepening not only their writing, creativity and professionalism, but also the screenwriter's work as an opinion maker.
