Vojin Vasovic – Twice upon a time

It might sound as exaggerating, but script development session of the ESP was a pure
psychotherapy for at least half of the participants. It is set as an intense self-exploration with a
nice combination of individual work and group (therapy) work. At first we were afraid to
open up, we protected our silly defence mechanisms and then thanks to our mentors and coparticipants
we opened up for failing, and that’s when the magic starts. My group had a
wonderful chance to work with Marie Dubas whose insights were not just valuable for stories
that we brought but also to understand what kind of filmmakers we want to become.
After participating in different talent campuses in my region and also Berlinale Talent
Campus, I realized that only with the ESP I had a feeling that the selected group of people can
form something closest to the «film wave» that we all crave to create with our generation. It is
just the right amount of projects and group work so that everybody can be aware of other’s
creations and artistic needs. During our two sessions we formed unofficial ESP choir and I am
sure that our voices (real and artistic) will meet and work together many times again!
