WRITING THE SHORT FILM
Sat 16 March
11am – 2.30pm (with ½ hour lunch break)
The short film is often overlooked as a story telling medium, but it can be a great calling card for the new writer or those coming from other writing disciplines. This half day course run by Maria Solecki is designed to equip those new to writing short films. You’ll leave with an understanding of: the role of the short film; the role of the screenwriter; what makes a great short; and mistakes to avoid. We’ll explore why less is most definitely more- and why short form story telling can be just as powerful as other forms.
Maria Solecki holds an MA in Screenwriting (Fiction) from the Northern Film School. Her short film Moja Kochanna Anna (My Love Anna) screened at several festivals and won Audience Award at Hyde Park Picture house in 2010. Since then she has run www.thescriptpod.com
