About this event

Further developing their unique approach to screenwriting structure Phil Hughes and Ted Wilkes deliver their second in a series of lectures with Central Film School focusing on the six key elements that make up the classic midpoint for a film narrative.

The midpoint is absolutely crucial to the dramatic success of your narrative. This point in a story is constructed from a series of interconnecting events, realisations and decisions that will create a new trajectory for your main character which will have an audience on the edge of their seats.

Ted Wilkes is a lecturer in Screenwriting and Film Studies. He writes elevated genre work which holds society's face in front of the mirror and makes it squirm. Currently, he has a feature under option at a BAFTA-nominated production company.

Phil Hughes is a Senior Lecturer and has been a screenwriter, script editor, script tutor and script doctor working with production companies and studios across Europe and the US for over twenty years. Credits include feature films Thunderpants and I Want Candy and television work The Queen’s Nose and Monkey Life.
