Screenwriters always ask – if I can’t write dialogue and I can’t write boring ‘black on the page’, then what CAN I write? Answer – VISUALS!!!
Bring your laptops and script pages – we will be applying these things above to OUR OWN WORK, remember.
In this afternoon session, we will learn how we can not only ‘reader proof’ our screenplays, but GRAB the reader and ensure they WANT to read our scripts.
DO NOTE: We’ll be workshopping our first 10 pages in small groups in the class itself, plus a couple of plucky writers will be
presenting theirs to ALL the delegates. So, make sure you bring your pages (paper, iPad, laptop etc all fine), plus pens, etc.
We’ll be DIVING IN to the spec screenwriter’s BIGGEST challenge – structure! This morning session will be about how understanding structure helps us not only with craft, but ensuring the story connects with its audience.
In this final session, we will be covering characterisation and how it intersects with all the other things we’ve covered:
LOGLINE LAB - Putting our concepts under the microscope. Are our loglines clear? Are there any problems or missed opportunities
at grass roots level?
We’ll be sharing our loglines within small groups, plus we’ll also have an unofficial ‘pitch factor’ style competition of the best ones, with delegates asking story questions, plus voting on the loglines they like best. So BRING YOUR BEST IDEAS and big girl/boy pants!
