First Light and The Script Factory, the UK’s leading script development company, have teamed up to offer a Second Light Screenwriting and Development Lab.
Supported by the Creative Skillset Film Skills Fund, the Lab has been specially designed to support emerging writers, producers and directors about the craft of screenwriting in the context of the UK film industry.
Taught by screenwriting and script development experts, this three-day workshop in Central London, will introduce the key concepts in building a story for film, with informal lecture sessions, film clips, and lots of practical exercises. It will also offer sessions with current industry practitioners with a focus on short films and low budget features; agents, producers and a working screenwriter as well as a guest from the world of commissioning TV drama.
The first Script Lab will take place in Central London in July. Further information and application form available here.
Further Script Labs will take place in Cardiff and Liverpool during September and we will announce further details during August. To make sure that you find out about these and other opportunities, sign up to the Light Lounge via First Light.
