Writing Retreat Bali
Screenwriter, Playwright and Screenwriting Lecturer
Raising The Curtain On Stephen
AFI nominated Writer, Stephen Davis has had works played at the Toronto, Tokyo, Sydney, San Diego and Cannes film festivals. A best-selling Playwright, he also has seven published plays and hours of award-winning, produced theatre work. A well-practiced and incredibly knowledgeable wielder of story and character craft. We’re incredibly excited to have Stephen with us on retreat.
Current Screenwriting Projects
Developing scripts for Robyn Kershaw and Jonathan Page, Stephen’s also a Screenwriting Lecturer at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) in Sydney. Rich and energetic delivery – combined with his quick wit – are a real hit with industry pro’s and film students who come to sharpen their skills. What’s more, Stephen has not paid us to write any of this.
Stephen has worked in Sydney and LA in head of development positions for 20thCentury Fox and April Films.
Create Characters with Stephen Davis on Retreat
Form character and plan a screenplay to catharsis. Starting with an empty sheet of paper, Stephen will guide you through the process of creating a character for film and TV. Plot their transformative arc through an ancient – indeed Aristotelian – process, and learn how to create great character-led narratives again and again. Using cinematic examples, Stephen offers you useful tools to inform your writing long beyond the retreat. Super.
