Learning to Write Screenplay Coverage is designed to increase the diversity of script readers, assessors and selectors in Aotearoa. The call for expressions of interest for 2021 is now closed
For the programme in 2021 six filmmakers were selected to receive a scholarship to take part in UCLA’s 10-week online training course Writing Screenplay Coverage and wrap-around support from Script to Screen.
They will participate in 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.
2021 recipients are: Albert Belz, Catherine Bisley, Malinna Liang, Marc Laureano, Marina Alofagia McCartney, Matilda Poasa
