Introduction to Screenwriting

15th February 2010 by Maura McHugh

Alan Keane is offering a two-day Introduction to Screenwriting seminar, on Saturday, February 20th and Sunday, February 21st, in the Smithfield/Stoneybatter Area in Dublin City.

Screenwriting is a notoriously difficult career to get ahead in and all too often people make the plunge with little knowledge as to how the industry works and what’s exactly required to get yourself noticed. This 2-day seminar will act as a crash course in understanding the principles involved in great writing. It will help you to become aware of the skills and craft you’ll need to create unforgettable stories that will get you noticed by readers and also help get you an agent.

TOPICS COVERED INCLUDE:
* Format
* Style
* Dialogue writing
* Visual Grammar
* Three Act Structure
* The craft of writing a scene
* Characterisation and the arc of transformation
* Genre
* What the readers are looking for – An industry perspective
* How do I get my first break?

Cost of the seminar is €95.
