The Art of Screenwriting

The training programme was developed to:

• use real-life inspiration to identify a good idea for a short (10-20 minute) screenplay
• develop this initial idea into a satisfying film story using the essential building blocks of character, structure and visual storytelling
• create interesting characters who an audience can relate to and care about
• tell a story primarily through images
• understand that conflict is at the heart of every drama
• write compelling dialogue and learn when pictures are more powerful than words
• give and receive feedback on work in progress
• learn the importance of redrafting – ‘writing is rewriting‘
