We're also thrilled to announce an exciting second strand,  FilmUp Script Development, especially designed to up-skill those of you working with writers developing screenplays, whether you be producers, script editors, or directors.

Experienced coach and story consultant,  Brita McVeigh, will be at the helm of this strand, working with participants to hone their story skills and process when collaborating with writers.

She's a genuine collaborator. Every project is different and Brita's skill is that she knows how to find the weak spots and strengthen them. She knows how to work closely on the script with the writer/director, or in rehearsal with the cast, to enhance the vision - that's how she worked with Taika on 'Boy'.
