Key Features

Don't get it right, get it written

You fancy yourself a writer, you've got great ideas, but you can't get past page 5… you struggle to actually get your screenplay written and finished. It sits in a drawer and gathers dust. You think it's great but no-one else does… you've got writer's block….

Does this sound like you?

Don't worry, it's quite common.

This one day workshop is designed to get your ideas out of your head and on to the paper. We will delve into the secrets of what makes a great screenplay.

Even better than that, every single person will end the day with a blueprint for a feature film.

You may be good at innovating, but bad at actually doing – or perhaps you're great at the process, but short on ideas. We will be doing practical exercise that will give you insight into balancing form with creativity.

This is not just a sit back and listen course. You should bring a notebook and be prepared to participate.

Even if you are not a writer, but involved in directing or production, you might find this course useful in terms of script development.

Prepare to be inspired.
