Workshop - Fiction - Winter 2023

Wednesday February 1, 2023

Main Film

Instructor | Florence Lafond (Je voudrais qu’on m’efface)

Members $60 | Non-members $90


The fictional web series is a genre that filmmakers and audiences are increasingly turning to. At the crossroads between a short film and a linear series, how is the creation of a web series established? In this workshop, you will learn the differences between a linear and a fragmented work, the various styles and structures of web series and the basics of writing this genre of fiction. The course will be based on Florence Lafond and Éric Piccoli’s scripts (Je voudrais qu’on m’efface) in order to learn about examples of produced and broadcast works.

Workshop is given in French but questions may be asked in English.

You are encouraged to write a short note describing your project / your expectations so that the instructor can guide you best before February 8th.
