Feature Film Screenplays Industry Bootcamp

Script to pitch to screen (and phone)

Monday April 27th - Saturday May 2nd 2020

Lumb Bank

Aimed at both the first-timer and the experienced screenwriter, this workshop-intensive course focuses on the changing nature of the screen industry and how this is impacting on the journey from script to screen, for stories and their creators. Beginning with rigorous story surgery, writers will gain greater understanding of the need for distinctiveness and innovation in the age of digital distribution. You’ll also have the chance to develop cut-through pitch materials to deliver maximum impact. Individual and group sessions will cover writing, producing, programming, distribution and exhibition, transcending the mechanics of ‘how to’ handbooks to offer unique insight into the business derived from almost 40 years of professional screen practice.

Single room price: £815
