Writing human stories workshop with Brita McVeigh

Posted Monday 01 May 2017

A two-day story workshop for the stunningly economical price of $20? Grab this opportunity!

Script to Screen presents a two-day feature film workshop (Auckland, May 13-14) for emerging filmmakers with story consultant and dramaturg Brita McVeigh.

We know how important it is to create character-driven stories, but how to get there can feel like a mystery. Brita will guide participants through individual exercises, group work, and conversation that provide tools for writing from inside your characters.

Don't miss this interactive and practical workshop that will help you bring your stories to life so they can ultimately connect with an audience.

What to bring: All participants need to be working on a feature film project that they can use for the workshop exercises. The project can be at any stage of development, be it synopsis, first draft or beyond. Directors and producers are encouraged to attend, but must be working on a feature film and be prepared to participate in the exercises.
Date: Saturday 13 & Sunday 14 May, 2017
Time: Saturday 9.30am - 4:30pm, Sunday 9am - 2:30pm
Venue: Samoa House, 283 Karangahape Rd, Auckland CBD (entry off Beresford Square, down the lane)
Cost: $20. 
Registration: Spaces are limited so you must register your interest - details on the Script to Screen website.
