Course program

The course is an introduction to the basics of scriptwriting for screen and is open to anyone, regardless of experience.

Primary Creations have been running very success scriptwriting for screen courses across Manchester, previous participants have said the course 'has given me confidence in my writing', 'I've enjoyed meeting new people and sharing ideas', and that its 'inspiring and helped me build a portfolio of work'.

The idea of the programme is that by the end of the 6 weeks participant will have written a 10-15 minute short film. During the course the aim is to provide information about structuring and developing a sound script. The sessions will include both a lecture ‘style’ part which looks at structuring your script, the factors which are necessary for a sound script, examples of other peoples work and writing exercises.

After completion of the 6 week programme participants are invited to move on to the 2nd phase where you can work on a piece of your choice such as another short film, feature length or TV drama, again where actors are invited on the final session to bring your work to life.

Writing can be a lonely task, these sessions give participants the chance to meet like minded people from all different walks of life and also fresh eyes and minds to bounce your ideas off.

Beth McCann will be running the sessions. She has an MA in scriptwriting, is a lectuer at Salford & Bolton University. Beth is a co-director of Not Part Of Festival, coordinator for the Northern Film Network and script consultant and is a professional actor.

The sessions are a great opportunity to motivate and structure your writing, network with other writers.

You do not need to have written before to benefit from this programme as you will work step by step through the principles, if you have ideas but don't know where to start or you feel like you never to get finish this is your chance to experiment.
