Event description

Description

scriptwriting for film and television

A film script is the dramatisation of a story. But it is more than that - it is a list of instructions to both cast and crew.

In this workshop you will be introduced to the tricks and techniques of screen writing by professional script writer John Coombes. With his knowledge, experience and encouragement, you will be able to begin expanding your ideas into scripts for film or television.

In the morning we will focus on the story. You will take part in the process of getting an initial idea into a workable story, suitable for film or television.

We will discuss the essential ingredients of a dramatic story - jeopardy, climaxes, back-stories and inciting moments. We will work on character development and its role in plot development.

After lunch we begin the process of transferring the story to the script. We look at the transition from prose to dialogue, elliptic speech and unfinished sentences. We look at script formatting, scene descriptions, camera moves and timing. You will learn how to tell part of the story with just pictures and camera techniques.

During the inspiring and motivational workshop, we encourage you to take your own notes, but you will also receive handouts, including tips from established screen-writers.

We will provide tea and coffee throughout the day.

Lunch is included and will usually be a vegetarian soup with bread, cheese and fruit.

Free on-site parking.





FOLLOW-ON WORKSHOPS: You will craft a story from an original idea then create a script and progress it through a series of drafts, to a final draft which will be ready to go into production.



You can also book our SHOOTING WORKSHOP and our EDIT WORKSHOP
