Alle großen Regisseure haben klein angefangen: Mit Kurzfilmen. Und ihre bewegten Bilder begannen als schwarze Schrift auf weißem Grund: Mit einem Drehbuch - dem Stein, der alles weitere ins Rollen bringt. Wie schreibt man ein Script für einen Kurzfilm, der für Aufsehen sorgt? Welche Ansätze sind Erfolg versprechend, was kann man dabei falsch machen? "Kurzfilme schreiben - Der erste Schritt zum ersten Film" schließt eine wichtige Lücke: Es ist das erste deutschsprachige Lehrbuch, das sich speziell mit dem Entwerfen von Geschichten für Kurzfilmprojekte auseinander setzt. Es enthält neben einem theoretischen Teil, der Schritt für Schritt die Besonderheiten der Kurzfilmdramaturgie sowie typische Themen und Erzählformen erläutert, als Anschauungsmaterial auch ein Szenentreatment und 3 komplette Drehbücher zu international preisgekrönten Kurzfilmen. Ein praktischer Ratgeber für alle Filmstudenten und kreativen Autodidakten, die sich mit ihren Geschichten aufmachen, die Filmwelt zu erobern. Der Autor Axel Melzener hat selbst zahlreiche Drehbücher für Kurzfilme verfasst sowie als Dozent fast 100 Kurzfilmprojekte von Filmstudenten betreut. Er ist als Drehbuchautor, Gamewriter und Komponist tätig und unterrichtet Dramaturgie und kreatives Schreiben an Film- und Medienhochschulen im In- und Ausland.

A Shot by Shot Study of Nine Modern Classics

This work is the first of its kind to single out individual short fiction films for comprehensive presentation and close study. Two Men and a Wardrobe (Roman Polanski, Poland, 1958, 15 min.), Coffee and Cigarettes (Jim Jarmusch, USA, 1986, 6 min.), Sunday (John Lawlor, Ireland, 1988, 8 min.), Cat’s Cradle (Liz Hughes, Australia, 1991, 12 min.), Eating Out (Pal Sletaune, Norway, 1993, 7 min.), Come (Marianne Olsen Ulrichsen, Norway, 1995, 4.5 min.), Wind (Marcell Ivanyi, Hungary, 1996, 6 min.), Possum (Brad McGann, New Zealand, 1997, 14 min.), and The War Is Over (Nina Mimica, Italy, 1997, 7 min.) are the nine short fiction films studied. The films represent a broad range of storytelling approaches and a number of very different film cultures. Each film has a chapter of its own, including a shot-by-shot reproduction of the film with a still from every shot. In most cases, an interview with the director and an original screenplay and storyboard is also included. The book also describes a new conceptual model, derived from the films studied in the work, which can be used both for analyzing the ways in which a short fiction film tells its story and as a set of guidelines for student filmmakers writing their own screenplays. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Alles beginnt mit einer Zeile aus einem persischen Gedicht ... Anna und Nouri, beide Studenten an der Universität in Chicago, verlieben sich trotz ihres sehr unterschiedlichen kulturellen Hintergrunds ineinander. Anna, die zu ihren Eltern kein besonders inniges Verhältnis hat, ist überglücklich, mit Nouri in sein Heimatland Iran ziehen zu können, wo sie von seiner wohlhabenden Familie mit offenen Armen empfangen wird. Doch was 1978 mit einer glücklichen Ehe beginnt, wird völlig auf den Kopf gestellt, als die Welt durch den Sturz des Schahs und das Entstehen der Islamischen Republik aus den Fugen gerät. Unter Ayatollah Khomeini und den Republikanischen Gardisten wird das alltägliche Leben immer schwieriger. Anna muss lernen, in einer veränderten Welt voller Beschränkungen, in der die ihr vertrauten, westlichen Verhaltensweisen nicht mehrt toleriert werden, zu bestehen. Willkürliche Verhaftungen und Folter sind an der Tagesordnung. Frauen werden gezwungen, einen Hidschab zu tragen. Und Anna muss erkennen, dass sie nicht mehr frei über ihre Ausreise bestimmen kann. Als sich die Situation dramatisch zuspitzt, merkt Anna, dass nichts mehr so ist, wie sie dachte, und dass sie niemandem mehr vertrauen kann ... nicht einmal ihrem Ehemann.
