2018 WORKSHOPS

 

Workshop 1

Finistère, France

LIM starts out on its 2018 journey in a small village on Brittany’s rocky north coast, the home of Le Groupe Ouest. For a whole week, the team and participants set up camp in what used to be a farm in the heart of the countryside, a few hundred meters from the ocean. Their purpose is clear: to find the core of each project, both thematically and narratively. A search for the power driving each story as well as for the unconscious demand that lies at its heart.

TIFF Event

Transilvania International Film Festival, Romania

During an important European film event, the core of all 16 LIM projects, still in early development, are presented to an audience, confronting the authors with film professionals. Among these are producers, distributors, sales agents, broadcasters. An essential tool for this public presentation is a very personal video recorded by each filmmaker. The aim of this encounter is to also create an international network of film professionals, all united around LIM’s objectives: the use of limitations as a launching pad for a new momentum in independent cinema…

Workshop 2

Transylvania, Romania

In a chalet lost in the mountains, 20 kilometers from the nearest village, LIM’s team and participants enter phase 2 of their work: the deep digging. Combining feedback from professionals and following the path of the first rewrites in between the first two workshops, the goal is to establish a bone structure for the script, while integrating the creative trigger of budget limitations. Long walks in the forests of Transylvania, with combined consultants and groups, help find the way…

Workshop 3

Poland

Projects enter the final stage, working as a broader coalition of combined groups and consultants. The purpose is to finalise a strong treatment or a first draft. This is a step which requires input from line producers and first ADs, to help work to shooting constraints. This is about raising the right questions and finding the right answers, finding doors and windows, connecting the need for limitations with the search for a powerful story.

2017 WORKSHOPS

Workshop 1

Flanders, Belgium

LIM started out on its life-journey in a small village in Flanders. For one whole week, team and participants set up camp in an old windmill in the middle of the countryside. Their purpose was clear: to find the core of every project, thematically speaking and narratively speaking. A search for the power that drives every story and the unconscious demand that lies at its heart.

Workshop 3

Finistère, France

In Le Groupe Ouest’s home village, on Brittany’s rocky north coast, projects enter the final stretch, working as broader coalition of combined groups and consultants. The purpose is clear: to finalise a strong treatment, or a first draft if possible. It’s a step that injects input from line producers, DOPs and first ADs, to help build in real shooting constraints. This is all about asking the right questions and finding the right answers, using long walks on the beach, among seagulls, to help dig deeper, find doors and windows, connect restrictions with the vital and global need for powerful stories.
