A script constellation is an extremely useful tool for writers, directors, producers and film industry professionals of both, factual and fictional projects in any phase of script development. The method offers insights into the protagonists and their circumstances, revealing what lies beneath the surface. It can also reveal a project’s strengths and weaknesses and provides a creative push that will enhance the material. A script constellation can speed up the development process considerably and, if necessary, move the story into a new direction.

Questions we can help you answer:
- Are the characters in the right relationship to one another?
- Is the plot psychologically believable?
- Is a character strong and strong enough in relationship to other
- Is a particular character missing? Or are other characters
- At which point in the story is more or less conflict necessary?
- Where does the focus slip from the main plot to the subplot,
i.e. does the spine of the story crumble?
- Does the ending work? (Especially for the intended target
- Does the story connect to my intended audience?
- How do I grab and hold the audience's attention?
- Examination of individual characters and subplots
- Examination of individual sequences or scenes.
Script constellations can help determine the future course of the story, which is especially helpful for projects in early stages of development. The script constellation's major advantage is that it provides experimentation in almost limitless variation. In this way, you can effectively choose the strongest dynamic that most optimizes the story. It is also possible to do a 'concealed' script constellation which means participants and representatives are not told the story and only move within the constellation according to their feelings - to often astonishing results. In a more advanced stage of script development, we can look at subplots or scenes. A script constellation can cure writer's block and start the creativity flowing again. A script, in any phase of development - from the mere idea to a finished script - can profit from a script constellation, which of course can also save a considerable amount of time.
Participants without their own projects
Script constellations are also beneficial for participants without their own projects. Script constellations are a source of inspiration for one's own creativity, and a direct, experiential journey into how drama works.
All seminars include a limited amount of script consultation during and after the constellation.
Individual script constellations
In addition to group seminars, we also offer private script constella- tions. Participants either bring along their own group of people or we place marks on the floor to represent the characters /elements of the story. The author then puts himself in the relevant positions in order to understand and feel the relationship dynamics.
