NPA The Successful Screenplay Intensive Weekend

This Saturday the 19th & Sunday 20th April 10:00 - 16:00

Screenwriting is a highly rewarding profession and the most accessible route into the exciting business of film. But like any prize worth gaining, the way can be difficult and perilous for the uninitiated. Just as a film's hero needs a mentor to provide invaluable training for their magical journey, so studying craft will put you ahead of the game and give you the skills required to win the Holy Grail - the Successful Screenplay.

This course, held over one weekend, guides you step by step through the process of creating a professional screenplay: The Unique High Concept, Perfect Plotting, Killer Characters, the Secret of Segments, Sequences and Scenes, Dazzling Dialogue plus important industry information on how to Pitch and Sell Your Script and work festivals such as Cannes this May.
