AFTRS, Screen Tasmania and Wide Angle Tasmania invite you to join Ross Grayson Bell, the Australian-born producer of FIGHT CLUB and now the Head of Screenwriting at AFTRS, for an evening seminar exploring high concept films.
“Australian filmmakers have embraced ‘High Concept,’ millions around the globe have flocked to see those stories. From three drag queens in the outback, to a pig that wants to be a sheep dog, ‘High Concept’ films have worked for us in the past and will do so again.” Ross Grayson-Bell
The seminar will explore a number of issues including:
What constitutes a ‘High Concept’ film
* How filmmakers can take an idea from just a concept to a ‘High Concept’
* The history and success of ‘High Concept’ films in Australia and around the world (including UK and the US)
* How we can capture an audience’s attention, whether the audience is a financier/funding body or the movie-going public.
Date: September 21, 2011
Time: 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Location: Peacock Theatre, Salamanca, Hobart
