Screenwriting – For Film and TV

Photo: Person writing

How is a script written, and what's a scene-by-scene? What role does the screenwriter play in film production, and what specific elements do we need to put on the page to tell our stories?

Screenwriting can feel like a vastly different beast from prose-writing, with different priorities and a whole host of structural and formatting needs to consider. But it's also incredibly fun. This workshop will arm you with the tools you need leap into the incredible world of cinematic storytelling. Topics include, but are not limited to: writing pitches, treatments, scene-by-scenes, script formatting, plot structure, and of course how to consider the camera, director, and even the crew, while putting your words to the page.

No materials required.
