Congratulations to Marina Alofagia McCartney, Marc Laureano and Catherine Bisley who were selected for the UCLA's 10-week online training course Writing Screenplay Coverage, run by Script To Screen. There were 117 expressions of interest, and applications from people with diverse identities and backgrounds who already have a strong understanding of story were prioritised. The six participants will attend two workshops, one before the course starts and one after it finishes. The workshops will give context to the US-based course, with guest speakers demonstrating how the learning can be applied to the New Zealand screen industry. The participants will also form a study group to support each other during the learning.
