Om utbildningen

På Story får du som blivande manusförfattare göra det du kom för att göra: Skriva. Under utbildningen får du skapa och skriva upp till tre långfilmer, skriva en timmes pilotavsnitt till en egenutvecklad dramaserie, skuggskriva åtminstone två episoder till ett skarpt externt projekt för ett av Sveriges största produktionsbolag samt vara med i ett writing room för att tillsammans med en showrunner utveckla en kortserie som produceras på skolan ihop med Film Crew.

I slutet av varje läsår får du möjlighet att presentera ditt projekt för några av Sveriges mest erkända produktionsbolag och filmproducenter.

Målet med utbildningen

Målet med utbildningen är att du som deltagare efter de två åren ska ha de färdigheter som krävs för att du ska kunna arbeta självständigt som manusförfattare, arbeta mot uppdragsgivare med eget eller andras projekt samt kunna arbeta som avsnittsförfattare, individuellt eller i ett writersroom.

Gemensamt för alla linjer i Fårösund

Varje torsdag så hyr folkhögskolan Fårösunds idrottshall. Där ses vi, både deltagare och personal, för att röra på oss tillsammans. Några favoriter det senaste året har varit rundbadminton och fotboll.

Är tillräckligt många intresserade så hyr vi även gärna simhallen i samma byggnad, så att vi alla kan få tillgång till den en timme varje måndag.

Ibland går hela klassen eller hela skolan på gemensamma konserter, utställningar, teaterföreställningar och föreläsningar.

Det ingår också ett antal skolgemensamma obligatoriska hel- och halvdagar.
