It’s lights, camera, action for a series of screenwriting workshops in Kyneton for teenagers.
Drawing on his 20 years of experience in theatre, film and TV, Joshua Tyler will use dramatic writing techniques to help students harness the power of storytelling.
In this hands-on, interactive, energetic and collaborative course, Joshua will engage students with individual and group tasks that directly emulate the professional writing process.
Students will get the real-world experience of taking an idea and shaping it into a story worth sharing.
The workshop teaches dramatic storytelling principles, TV vs film, outlining and structure, anatomy of a scene, character, genre, screenplay formatting, pitch documents, and verbal pitching.
Students will leave with a clear understanding of how to apply cinematic storytelling techniques to their ideas.
The workshops will begin on July 27 from 5pm to 7pm and will run for eight weeks at Squishy Minnie Bookstore.
The course is suitable for teens aged 14 to 18. Cost is $100 but some subsidised places are available through Squishy Minnie.
