Screenwriting Sans Frontieres
The 21st Century has seen the dawning of a Century where worldwide economics, politics and technological development are intertwined with the growth of emerging Asian powerhouse economies. In this scenario, cultural forms like film, music and art are being transformed by cross-cultural aesthetic, industrial and market imperatives. This paper outlines Griffith Film School’s (Brisbane, Australia) work towards the writing of cinematic cross-cultural stories to address issues of cross-cultural collaboration, transnationalism and storytelling in the digital age. It considers recent research into successful international co-production scriptwriting models in Europe and Asia as well as theories of transnational storytelling that have emerged in co-production scenarios.
