Attendance is LIMITED TO SIX WRITERS. To book your place for the next session please contact us by the 25th of August at info@frenzyfilms.com. 

Do you have an idea for a short, feature, or TV pilot script you’d like to start developing? A script that you feel needs more work but you have no idea how to take it to the next level? That’s what our script development workshops are for.

ON THURSDAY AUGUST 31st, 6pm – 9pm, our tutor will help you develop your short, feature or TV script. Whether it’s from your initial idea or you’re finalizing your shooting script, you’ll receive professional industry feedback and support from your tutor, and additional feedback and support from the other class attendees (usually 4-6 in addition to the tutor).

For each workshop you submit up to four pages in treatment format, or up to 20 pages in screenplay format of the script pages you’d like to develop. You might also send a list of questions you would like the group to think about (optional).

During the workshop you’ll receive feedback from the other writers in your group as well as notes from the tutor.

The tutor will:

– Provide you with creative solutions you can then implement.

– Create a development plan for you, help you define a rewriting strategy and set you attainable goals for each step along the way.

– Suggest targeted resources to improve your craft.

THE RULES FOR ATTENDANCE ARE AS FOLLOWS: 

* Submit your work in English. Please note: feedback from the tutor and participating writers will also be in English.

* By midnight on Friday 25th August you submit a maximum of 4 pages of your story in treatment form – or up to 20 pages in screenplay form. Or you can present your idea verbally (pitch it!) if your idea is at an early stage and not written down yet. (Note: if the 20 pages you submit are not from the beginning of the script please provide a brief summary with the 20 pages).

* All participants agree to read the other writers’ pages ahead of the class in order to provide written and/or verbal feedback to the writer (there will be a maximum of six writers including yourself).

* Each writer will get at least 30 minutes of feedback on their work from the tutor and the other writers.

*OPTIONAL – if you have any specific questions you’d like the group to address you may send those questions with your script or treatment pages.
