Event description

Description

In real life, everyone speaks in their own unique voice - and that means that the same should be true in screenplays! Giving your characters their own unique way of speaking will make them seem more realistic and help an audience view them as genuine people they should care about.

This month's Script Development Group will help you to develop unique voices in dialogue. We'll be discussing how these voices are inextricably linked to the characters themselves and how to avoid making them all sound the same, with a half-hour workshop based around the topic as well.

Without the kind of description and inner thoughts that many novels rely on, many scripts must rely heavily on dialogue to tell their stories. Learn how to make yours shine with Screenwriters' Forum!

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.
