Event description

Description

Being able to craft a great character arc is one of the key skills for anybody who tells stories - and that, of course, includes screenwriters! A character needs to grow and change over the course of a script in order to keep audiences engaged, making this a vital component of a screenplay.

It also makes your script stronger from a structural point of view, helping to give the story shape. But being at the midpoint of structure and character, character arcs can be a tricky element for a writer to master.

Our Script Development Group in September will teach you all about how to write them effectively. Find out how to shape your characters over the course of a screenplay, making them leap off the page as real, vibrant people that audiences will fall in love with.

Our popular monthly Script Development Group sessions include a half-hour Mini-Masterclass from an industry expert on a subject requested by the group, a Q&A, and an hour spent together helping 3 writers develop up to 20-page samples of their work.

Tickets are £20 per session (£10 for BCU students - email support@friendlycreatives.co.uk to enquire about this) or £75 for 5.




SCREENWRITERS FORUM sessions can make your confidence and projects succeed. Our Introduction to Professional Screenwriting Course in early 2018 was rated by its 23 users (on a scale from 'Very Good' to 'Very Poor', in over 50 feedback forms provided across the course) over 90% overall, with ratings of 93% for its presenters, over 90% for its Content and Media, and almost 90% for its Handouts and Activities. User confidence in the subject grew on average over 18% per session, and user confidence in their own projects grew over 17% too - per session! Join our Group to grow your confidence and your projects with industry experts and your peers, every time.

Our Script Development Group sessions are typically designed to provide 15 minutes of news and updates, a half-hour Mini-Masterclass from an industry expert (on a subject requested by the group), 15 minutes of Q&A about it, and then 3x20 minutes spent discussing 20-page samples of scripts provided by the group for development. The aim is that everyone leaves with enhanced skills and knowledge every time and clear action points for how to improve their script, from both their peers and professional writers.
