Screenwriter and Script Doctor Robert Buchschwenter & Suzanne Buchan
There are no Bad Ideas, just a Lack of ideas to Make them Good!

Robert Buchschwenter was long a script doctor and currently a screenwriter who has an inclination to seemingly bad ideas as a source for good stories. He likes to dig around in construction zones where unfinished ideas are thrown together and fail, but could be considered as precious and inspiring raw material for beautiful stories. The discussion will touch on possible starting points for a story but also writer's paths in rough terrain that seem to lead nowhere, but eventually lead to the sheer pleasure of reading usable tracks. It will also question one of the most important tasks for an author: the deconstruction of the own ego. Robert would like to think of Mr. Wolf in Pulp Fiction – if you have a problem, call him and he'll find some playful solution.
