2015 Christchurch Filmmaker Workshop

Posted Friday 24 Apr 2015

Writing an Engaging Screenplay

Saturday 9 May, 9am-5pm, CPIT Broadcasting School, Christchurch

There's a big difference between writing a screenplay and writing a screenplay that people will read till the last page.

Join STS for a one-day screenwriting workshop with experienced NZ screenwriter Nick Ward (Stickmen, Second-Hand Wedding, Outrageous Fortune, The Almighty Johnsons), who has an extensive career in screenwriting, from feature films to television.

In an entertaining in-depth workshop, Nick shares his secrets to writing a screenplay that engages the reader and reads professionally. Come and hear how to inspire producers, avoid the common pitfalls and deal with the tough realities of getting your story to the big screen.

This workshop is suitable for screenwriters of all levels, from beginners to those with experience. Directors and producers are also welcome.

When: Saturday 9 May, 9am - 5pm.

Where: CPIT Broadcasting School, cnr Madras Street and Southwark Street, Christchurch.

Cost: The workshop is free.

Coffee, tea, biscuits and fruit provided. Please bring your own lunch or buy from one of the cafes nearby.

Registration: Please RSVP to Eloise eloise@script-to-screen.co.nz or 09 360 5400.
