Script Lab 5: Writing for Independent Cinema with Clive Frayne image

How do you write a script that will be attractive to UK and international producers working in the £250K to £900K range? How do you make it cinematically rich and rewarding, with a powerful story, whilst also writing something that can be shot cheaply and quickly? Join this lab with screenwriter and script editor Clive Frayne, author of The Process of Screenwriting, to find out how.

Submission Requirements

Expect competition for the six slots to be high, so only submit when your work is the best that it can be. To be considered, you will need to submit the following:

  •  Your screenplay for your project.
  •  A supporting statement about you and the project, giving context.
