Join us on an unforgettable adventure

Summer Scriptwriting Base is a unique combination of immersive learning experience, creative journey, and rural retreat. The participants will gain a deep understanding and know-how on exciting and cutting-edge topics such as building sci-fi and fantasy storyworlds, creating content for live action role-playing, interactive storytelling, and designing of alternate reality games and experiences.

ALTERNATE REALITIES

Is the theme of our adventure. 7 out of 10 of the highest grossing movies of all time belong to the sci-fi and fantasy genres. Sci-fi and fantasy are extremely popular, and for a good reason: they are fun and often magical experience. But they can also help develop our imagination and allow us to ask the most powerful question of all: “What if?”. Legendary sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke calls sci-fi “the only genuine conscience-expanding drug,” while historian Yuval Harari considers it the most important artistic genre today. Join us on our journey to Alternate Realities!

Journey to the magicland

Summer Scriptwriting Base will take place in the mountain village of Dolen. Often included among the most beautiful villages in Bulgaria, Dolen is located deep within the Rhodope Mountains. It is famous with its old traditional houses, earning it the status of National Architectural Reserve. The Rhodope Mountains are among the most unspoiled regions in Bulgaria, filled with breathtaking views. According to legend, the mountain range was home to the mythological musician Orpheus. More recently, Dolen’s traditional singing was designated by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
