Explore the world of screenwriting!

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. Scripts have 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.

Treatments, scene-by-scenes, screenplays, even pitches. We won't just talk about them, over the next four weeks, we will write them!

We will also cover 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.
