Developing The Draft - A deeper dive into Scriptwriting
Sat 21 Oct, 10:30-4:30
£45.00 or £40.00 for concessions and Members
This is a Writing and Editing workshop which will give you the opportunity to structure your project and spend some focused time on developing it into a working draft. As well as looking at Character and Story, we’ll explore the importance of Genre, Theme and Tone to really build depth and nuance into your script. It will be a very active session, with focused exercises and the opportunity to write, get feedback and rewrite - taking your draft to the next level.
The workshop is suitable for anyone with an idea that they've been working on - whether it's at draft stage or still in the development/planning phase.
