Inspiring the City is supported by Leeds Inspired part of Leeds City Council
This is a workshop aimed at all levels, which will introduce you to the art and craft of writing scripts, and in particular, the short film script. Learn about the basic building blocks of good screenwriting, character and structure. Pick up tips on what makes a scene fly, and get the dos and don't of the business from an industry professional. This workshop will include screenings of short films, as well as practical exercises to get you started.
