Explore the basics of writing for film in a fun and engaging way!
Take a chance by improving one's balance in life by taking on a new interest or hobby. We all love movies and enjoy talking about them at work — so why not learn how they're written?
Participants will have a more in-depth understanding of how stories for the film medium are crafted as well as a foundation to build upon should they choose to explore screenwriting creatively.
Participants receive a lightning fast crash course, then brainstorm and draft a short storyline and, in doing so, discover the full range of their own creativity!
Re-think team building activities! Screenwriting is something a lot of people wonder about but never take the plunge and the time to try to learn how it's done. Whether it’s for for team and interest building, or as a relaxing reward in the form of a lunch-and-learn — The Screenwriting Challenge! is sure to spark interest and trigger loads of laughter.
