Writing for Screen – Short Film Writing Course

typewriter-801921_1920

This is an intermediate level course for people who have previously completed our beginners playwriting course or have equivalent writing experience.

Over 10 weeks students will aim to write a short film script of 10 minutes or less.

Led by experienced professional film/ TV and theatre writer Paul Goetzee you will look at the examples of all genres of shorts including dramas, animations, stories and documentaries. Paul will take you through the process of making a short film using illustrations from his own experience and looking at scripts.

You will then go on to develop your own stories, using the toolkit of character, story, dialogue, structure, scene building etc. in a screenplay format.

You will look at the basics of film making to understand camera shots and filming techniques to give a taste of the practical and technical issues involved.

Along the way you will receive professional guidance and feedback from Paul.

Sections of the final scripts will be read by professional actors in an informal showcase at the end of the course.
