Description

“We are very happy to recommend this; we are of course very aware of the shortage of good scripted Comedy Producers as well as Script Editors so think it’s absolutely worthwhile” NERYS EVANS, CHANNEL 4.

Following the successful launch of our first one day version of this course, we are pleased to offer a new date for those interested in the skills and methods involved in helping create great TV comedy scripts.

Script Editors are an essential part of the script development process; they are key to helping writers get their work from script to screen. This is a rare opportunity for students interested in Comedy and Comedy Script Editing to learn about this vital role.

The session will look at how screen comedy works. It will explain the practicalities of script editing and how to manage writers and production teams.

The course is aimed at people who love comedy and the written word and who have some professional experience in the fields of production for the stage, for radio or for the screen.

THE COURSE

  • What Comedy is being made; what works and what doesn’t.
  • What does the job of Comedy Script Editor entail? What skills do you need? What are the essential qualities required to become a good script editor?
  • Duration, layout, premise, story, characters, and locations.
  • What are channels buying, who are the major players, what themes are emerging in modern Comedy scriptwriting and production?
  • How to write a script report
  • Giving script notes
  • Getting work

You will be sent a script in advance of the course and be expected to read and then review the piece during the course.

COURSE LEADERS

MARK ROBSON and GRAHAM SMITH have been working in Television Comedy and Entertainment since the late 1980s, with extensive screen credits as commissioners, script editors, producers and directors of Screen Comedy. Their work includes sketch shows, situation comedy, comedy film and comedy drama.
