It's time to tell your story!
VAST – Vienna Academy of Storytellers
The VIENNA ACADEMY OF STORYTELLERS (VAST) is a collective that promotes all aspects of storytelling through workshops, seminars and collaborations in Film and Theater.
We offer a comprehensive approach to dramaturgy utilizing archetypes, myths and pop culture in order to better understand genre, medium, theme, character development and story structure. Storytelling is vast from idea, to page, to submitting for funding, to production, let VAST help.
