Led by screenwriter and ARU lecturer Toby Venables, co-creator and co-writer of the BAFTA-winning Netflix film His House (2020), this three-day course of workshops aims to develop screenwriters’ storytelling skills and provide professional, real-world insights to help them break into the industry.
Many resources can tell you the basics of writing a feature screenplay. But then what?
This three-day series of practical workshops, led by an industry professional with four produced feature films to his credit, seeks to unravel some of the mystery and connect the practices of writing to the processes of the industry.
Each day tackles a different topic and a different part of the process, from conception, through pitching and development, to final script.
Day One: Theme and Logline
Day Two: Character and Treatment
Day Three: Structure and Script
