Introduction to Screenwriting
A hands-on guide to creating stories for the screen.
Learn in a day what aspiring screenwriters struggle with for years, as the experts from the Young Film Academy introduce the basic pillars of visual storytelling structure - from the Odyssey to Lord of the Rings via Finding Nemo and Spiderman. Participants will then put what they've learned into practice with an intensive writing workshop, during which they'll separate into teams to devise a short film structure, with attention to goals, obstacles, well-rounded characters and character change. Each team will then pitch to potential investors for £10,000 of (virtual) investment. Members of the winning team take home a prize - and, more importantly, the tools required to take their writing to the next professional level.
