Event description


The first half of this workshop will teach you how to translate your vision for the screen to the page and give practical tips on creating treatments, developing scripts and most importantly - what commissioners want to see.

Following that, using case studies from film and games industries, the second half of the session will focus on how you can protect, control and exploit the content you develop and your brand. Crucially, it will highlight intellectual property ownership issues to consider when you collaborate with others.
