Script Hut Saturdays

‘Seen and Heard’ TV, Film and Audio
You have your core idea and the story you want to tell. A theatre piece doesn’t feel the right approach but is there another medium that might suit your story idea? Audio-play, for radio or podcast, perhaps? Or screenplay, for television or film? Each medium has its own unique way of sharing stories, and its own particular aural and visual language expressed through structure, locations, scene editing, time shift and effects.
But with even the layout of broadcast scripts demanding a different mind-set, how does one approach exploring storytelling through these different methods? And will exploring these methods maybe give rise to a new screen or audio story never thought of before?
This full-day script writing workshop, led by Alison Watt (EastEnders, Crossroads), examines the different types of broadcast media available for storytelling through drama. Through discussion, lone and shared exercises, analysis of texts and your own creative work, this workshop will supply you with a broad understanding of how to tell stories in different ways through different media and give you an effective grounding in shaping your story to the medium of your choice.
