Event description

Description

So, you need your audience to know something. Maybe it's an important bit of backstory or some facts that will help them make sense of the story - but how do you convey it?

It's easy to fall into the trap of exposition, where characters just start talking facts, and quite clearly just for the sake of the audience! This leads to clunky, unrealistic dialogue that can stop a screenplay in its tracks and make people switch off.

Our December Script Development Group will be all about how to avoid exposition. Find out how to use the full potential of the screenplay format to convey information subtly and realistically through dialogue, visual elements, and other methods!

Our popular monthly Script Development Group sessions include a half-hour Mini-Masterclass from an industry expert on a subject requested by the group, a Q&A, and an hour spent together helping 3 writers develop up to 20-page samples of their work.

Tickets are £20 per session (£10 for BCU students - email support@friendlycreatives.co.uk to enquire about this) or 75 for 5.




SCREENWRITERS FORUM sessions can make your confidence and projects succeed. Our Introduction to Professional Screenwriting Course in early 2018 was rated by its 23 users (on a scale from 'Very Good' to 'Very Poor', in over 50 feedback forms provided across the course) over 90% overall, with ratings of 93% for its presenters, over 90% for its Content and Media, and almost 90% for its Handouts and Activities. User confidence in the subject grew on average over 18% per session, and user confidence in their own projects grew over 17% too - per session! Join our Group to grow your confidence and your projects with industry experts and your peers, every time.

Our Script Development Group sessions are typically designed to provide 15 minutes of news and updates, a half-hour Mini-Masterclass from an industry expert (on a subject requested by the group), 15 minutes of Q&A about it, and then 3x20 minutes spent discussing 20-page samples of scripts provided by the group for development. The aim is that everyone leaves with enhanced skills and knowledge every time and clear action points for how to improve their script, from both their peers and professional writers.
