2015 Christchurch Filmmaker Workshop: Writing an Engaging Screenplay

May 9, 2015 - May 9, 2015, CPIT Broadcasting School, Christchurch

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

Join us 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, and directors and producers are also welcome.

When: Saturday 9 May, 9am – 5pm.

Where: CPIT Broadcasting School, Television Studio – 171 Madras Street, accessible through the car park on the corner of Madras Street and Southwark Street, Christchurch. MAP.
