THE ART & CRAFT OF SCREENWRITING
Being held for the first time in the UK, these workshops can be enjoyed individually, in any order, or built into a complete course on the art and craft of screenwriting.
Each workshop focuses on a different movie genre with a different type of script and highlights different screenplay techniques to uncover what makes a good film great.
ALL FORMS OF STORYTELLING
Through illustrated examples, you will discover how to apply the timeless principles of storytelling to your own script. These unique workshops provide a wealth of knowledge and understanding that can be applied equally to all forms of story: radio and advertising, video games and novels, television and movies.
THE INSIDE STORY OF SCREENPLAY
Whether you’re already a screenwriter with a script to edit, an aspiring screenwriter with a great story idea, a novelist, a copywriter, or someone who simply wants to know how a film works from behind the scenes, this is the workshop for you.
Welcome to the inside story of screenplay!
