2017 Christchurch Filmmaker Workshop: Writing an Engaging Screenplay

April 8, 2017, CPIT BROADCASTING SCHOOL, CHRISTCHURCH
SHW

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.

If you attended the Christchurch workshop with Nick Ward in 2015 please feel welcome to come again. The workshop is organic in form and responsive to questions from the audience, so will naturally take a different shape to last time.

When: Saturday 8 April 2017, 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.

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 Sjionel sjionel@script-to-screen.co.nz or 09 360 5400.

This workshop is made possible with support from the Creative Communities Scheme.
