We believe in creating better films by bringing screenwriters, actors and directors together
Aspö Writing Lab is dedicated to the craft and passion of writing and storytelling. In our summer camp (one week) and winterlabs (1-2 days) we combine script coaching, lectures and screen-play analysis with live-performance of writers scenes by actors and director. We’re joined IRL and via Skype by some of the best brains in the industry, under informal settings.
