In Praise of the Workshops

“I think what Steve and The Screen Arts Institute are doing is very important for the movie industry in Britain. Encouraging new filmmakers, nurturing them. It’s investing in the future culture of Britain.” - Tim Bevan (Co-Chairman Working Title Films)

“There is no doubt that emerging talent is getting extraordinary support from Steve May’s commitment, industry connections and expertise.” - Oliver Parker, dir Othello, An Ideal Husband

Each week:

May 2nd- Aug 15th
Wednesdays: 6 - 9pm Masterclass & Networking

This is a series of sixteen 3-hour masterclasses. Each masterclass/workshop is prompted by a classic movie but links, immediately, to the attending filmmaker’s works-in-progress.

Stephen May and industry guests will point a strong light at the techniques the featured movies are using to manipulate and entertain their audiences. (recent industry collaborators include: NBCUniversal, Working Title Films, Comedy Central, Film4 etc).

In addition, the attending Filmmakers will work in small groups:

• investigating the structure of their own movies, with the aid of collaborators
• “re-writing” through the lens of new craft ideas
• examining the primary commercial value of their works-in-progress
• discussing and making presentations on why the viewed movie does or does not “work”

Attendees receive movie resources in advance of each workshop and must watch the designated movie in advance.

The primary purpose of this series of workshops and case studies is to inspire filmmakers who are in the process of story/project development and/or script writing.

It is an opportunity to:


  • be inspired by great work.

  • be reminded that film-grammar is arguably as important a story tool as scripts and story-structure.

  • learn how movies REALLY get made

  • consider the different “shapes” of storytelling within given genres and
 types of audience manipulation.

  • network with talented filmmakers and industry mentors.

Once you have bought tickets you will be sent a link to film resources. You MUST watch the designated film in advance of the Masterclass.

EVERY Masterclass carries valuable storytelling technique - so don't think you have to choose a day when we're referring to a movie that you particularly like - in some senses, it is irrelevant. We are studying CRAFT not TASTE.

(attendance is by invitation - if you don't have the ticket access code - then email us with a request to attend, and include your filmmaking cv)
