About this event

Storytelling for the Screen

This workshop will look at the difference between screen stories and other forms— how to move an audience and keep them engaged, and how to use image.We will focus on the elements of storytelling—character, structure, theme, hope and fear—from an overview of screenplay structure to analysing a scene. This an interactive workshop for beginners to improvers, with scene writing exercises.

“Heroes in drama are people who try hard to reach a virtuous ideal. And whether they succeed or fail really doesn't matter - it's the trying that counts.” Aaron Sorkin
