A screenplay is a collection of scenes, laid out like beads on a necklace. Most screenwriting courses focus front and centre on the big picture, on the hero’s journey, on story and plot structure. This is putting the cart before the horse. In this 6-week course we set out to create unpredictable characters… then put them in great scenes. We focus on the basics of clean screenplay formatting, and on stage directions that never waffle.

We look to banish writer’s block forever with tailor-made pressures on a character and with settings and scenarios that are loaded with symbolism, irony and depth.

Areas to be covered:
The generation of original content, depth of character, dialogue that sings, the power of images and setting, clean formatting and stage directions, and most importanatly, the belief in your own personal taste, tone and style. Film making as a collaborative art: agents, producers and “the Business”. No experience is needed for this course; just the enthusiasm to write the film that YOU would love to see.

COVID PRECAUTIONS WILL BE IN PLACE SUCH AS: SANITIZING AVAILABLE, VENTILATION, AND A HEPA AIR FILTER IS IN THE STUDIO.
