Intro to Short Film Screenwriting
IdeasTap is offering the opportunity to attend two workshops focused on the art of writing a script for a short film.

IdeasTap - a charity centred around young creatives at the start of their careers - has opened applications for a two-day workshop based around the art of screen writing for short films. The workshop will be led by Sheena Bucktowonsing (Soho Theatre Writers’ Centre, Script Factory, Kindle Entertainment).

"Writing a good short film requires exactly the same skills as writing a full-length feature - you just don't have as long to tell your story! ... With this in mind, we are offering 20 IdeasTap members the chance to attend two screenwriting workshops designed to take you through the mechanics of short film scriptwriting."

"These sessions are for writers that want to write a short film script for the first time. You might have experience in writing other forms but have never had a short film script produced. The sessions will be practical and involve writers developing their ideas from one session to the next."

The workshops will be held in London on 20 and 27 November 2013 from 6pm to 8pm.
