Script Out Loud in Galway

5th February 2010

The Galway Film Centre is running a one-day screenwriting workshop called “Script Out Loud” on Saturday, 27th February, which will be taught by David Keating.

David wrote and directed The Last of the High Kings (Miramax), starring Jared Leto, Gabriel Byrne and Christina Ricci. His latest feature, Wake Wood (Hammer/Vertigo/IFB), will be released in 2010 and stars Aiden Gillen (The Wire), Eva Birthistle (Ae Fond Kiss) and Timothy Spall (The Damn United, Sweeney Todd).

This one-day workshop will help screenwriters advance their material by exploring it ‘off the page’. Participants will act out each other’s work and tutor, David Keating will guide writers to improve their dialogue, action and scene descriptions. All participants will do a small amount of preparation which will be sent to you in advance. This will include writing 1 or 2 pages of script and analysing at according to conflict, exposition and needs/wants of characters. You can bring a camera and ask someone to film your work being acted out, if you want.

The cost of the workshop is €100 unwaged / €130 waged.
