Training Camps are studying paths designed for storytellers who want to develop stories they have on their mind.
So if you’re one of them, we will help you make your story grow and at the end of the path, you’ll get a chance to present your project to people who are just looking for something like that (whether it’s a book or a comics series, for example).
The first step is: pick a studying path that may suit you and email your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org (but remember that Training Camps are only in Italian).
The best ideas will be selected and classes will be formed into small groups (5 people per group at the most). The groups will work in close contact with a trainer (an expert in the field), both throughout the sessions online and during some intensive weekends in Turin at Scuola Holden.
At the end of the course, your story will have grown into a complete, solid and well-structured project. You’ll have defined the plot and the setting and know your characters to the last detail (from their cloth size to their favourite whisky). All this to get yourself ready for the final pitch, when you’ll only have a little bit more than five minutes to present your project to a panel of experts in the field and convince them that it is worth betting on. It’s going to be no small feat but finding yourself face to face with publishers, telling them about your novel or screenplay, doesn’t happen every day. Does it?
