Develop Your Screenplay | Thu 22 Sep to Thu 3 Nov | 6.30-8.30pm | £84 (6 wks) | 16+yrs | Tutor Becca Ellson | Digital Lounge
Bring your first draft of your screenplay (in whatever state it may be in!) and we will work as a guided writers room to develop it into a confident piece of work – with the aim of getting it to an audience.
What will the class cover and how will it be taught?
Over 6 weeks we will use development processes including guided feedback, table reads, professional formatting tips and techniques to activate and visualise your story on the page.
The course can be taken on your own terms, and we will demystify the industry and share resources for getting your script read and pitching if that is what you’re ready for.
Come prepared to share your work in a supportive environment
Who is it suitable for?
Screenwriters who have a first draft or detailed treatment of a feature to work with, and who want to develop it further.

A laptop or pen and paper.
Are there any additional costs?
Please note there are no classes during the week beginning 24 October 2022
