Stand out from the crowd
Monday April 29th - Saturday May 4th 2019
This course is designed to equip you with the writing skills, industry know-how and experience of collaborative working that the ever-changing industry demands. We aim to help you develop your projects so that they stand out from the crowd and allow you to understand how to function within a professional environment across different screen industries. We will include a pitching workshop so you are able to verbalise your work in a dynamic way.
