Screenwriters, this is your chance to learn the basics of writing lively and credible dialogue for your characters. Over the course of six mini-modules we'll give you notes on the foundational skills involved.
We are now able to walk you through the entire screenwriting process
We’ll provide you with the skills you need, help you conceive of and develop your idea … and write it from beginning to end.
The SCREENWRITING CRASH COURSE is a ten-module online programme that runs you through the essential skills required to write for film or television. Join Michéle Rowe and Richard Beynon, two immensely experienced screenwriters and course facilitators, for an exhilarating introduction to the craft. In just five weeks you’ll master the basic array of skills that could start you on a creative – and profitable – screen or tv writing path.
At that point, you’ll be ready to move on to the advanced KICKSTART YOUR SCREENPLAY programme, which will help you craft a clear, well-structured outline. We’ll help you turn an idea into a workable outline.
