Script Labs

Scriptlab på Manusfabriken: Från vänster: Karin Blixt, Johanna St Michaels, Gorki Glaser-Müller, Morgan Jensen, Niclas Ekström.

Manusfabriken arranges Script Labs, in which writers focus on their projects for several days.

One of the linchpins of Manusfabriken is an aim to professionalize the process of giving and receiving feedback. Many projects receive feedback from producers, dramatists or financiers in conjunction with applications for funding. Manusfabriken has developed a method “screenwriters to screenwriters” which is partly based on us becoming involved at an earlier stage. The aim of this is to maximize the chance of getting a “yes” to a project and avoiding an unnecessary “no”.

Several writers meet for a few days in a Script Lab and focus on the selected projects. We start with the writer’s vision and look at the script as a whole – structure, theme, characters, dialog, audience potential and so forth. The joint work on the script provides more perspectives and in-depth discussions, with the aim of taking the project to the next stage, regardless of where it is in the process.
