Meet Helga and Odelia from… The scriptteam!
When did you join Open Filmteam for the first time?
Helga: Two years ago I wanted to get more experience as a scriptwriter and an experienced scriptwriter recommended the Open Filmteam. Then it took a year of occasionally checking the website before I accidentally came across a call for scriptwriters. January last year was the first meeting I attended.
Odelia: Around June 2020, our group of scriptwriters was formed. This was the moment I joined Open Filmteam.
“it’s a bunch of creative people, some with other day jobs, but all with a passion for film”
What is your experience with Open Filmteam so far?
Helga: I was digitally present during the 24-hour filmproject and I was really surprised how well that worked. I still felt like I was there. And the end result is really worth it.
Odelia: I really enjoy the team cause it’s a bunch of creative people, some with other day jobs, but all with a passion for film. We’re coming together to create stories, make our own stories better, learn from each other and watch/review existing (short) movies.
Helga: I particularly enjoy that writing together also allows you to inspire each other and pull each other through difficult moments.
“I have realised that a whole team of people, each with their own qualities, is very valuable”
Who would you recommend to join in a project of Open Filmteam?
Odelia: I would recommend anyone who has a serious interest to become a screenwriter/producer/director etc, to join the team. You also really build up a network.
Helga: I would definitely recommend it to people. In any case, it is fantastic to work together and to see that we actually managed to make not one, but two films. I have realised that a whole team of people, each with their own qualities, is very valuable.
