Writer/producer calls for creative re-think

24 June 2015 9:08 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Andrew Knight is not a critic of Australia.s film schools but if he were invited to lecture on screenwriting he.d take a radically different approach.

The veteran writer/producer disagrees with an over- emphasis on structure, formulas and genres. .Too much of it and you start to stifle creativity, to pigeon-hole and not let it take to the open air,. Knight tells If, elaborating on the Aacta masterclasses he delivered in Sydney and Melbourne this month.

.When you start hearing hard and fast rules like .there must be a crisis by page 23. - maybe it.s time to check if paid your medical insurance..

In January he received Aacta.s inaugural Longford Lyell Award which recognised his contributions to screen culture in a career spanning more than 30 years.

His credits as head writer or co-writer include The Water Diviner, SeaChange, The Broken Shore, Fast Forward, Full Frontal, »
