Event description
SO YOU WANT TO WRITE A FILM? - Write Pride proudly presents a masterclass with Oli Mason

About this Event

So you want to write a film? Great! Join Oli Mason for a 3 hour masterclass diving into various areas of film making from the initial ideas and writing to getting a film made.

Oli will cover writing and developing ideas including formatting, editing and gaining feedback as well as budgets and the practicality of making your film plus various ways of distributing it.

We will also explore writing around LGBTQ themes including character building and telling LGBTQ stories drawing on what has already been covered in film and the things you want to say through your writing.
