Day Two (Date TBC) // Story Pitch and Refining Ideas with John Yorke for TV / longform projects
Objective:To prepare writers and their projects to find success in the commercial marketplace.
Location: Venue TBC
Date: Date TBC
This course is teaching me skills and mindsets that no other screenwriting course ever has, even though these are as critical to success as writing talent."
KT Parker, Screenwriter
The day will start with a film business exercise designed to further professionalise your script and career. Then we hand over to John Yorke. Buckle up for this one!
We will then take a script through the production process and into post production to show how and WHY it is so essential to remain involved through on set and post production rewrites.
John Yorke will run this workshop focused on how to identify the value of your work in monetary terms, how to increase its commercial viability and to advise project selection and/or abandonment based on current market trends. You will take your own pre-existing project, idea or concept and, if needed, re-imagine them in a commercial context.
Note: Additional Guest Speakers (TBC) will also be joining us.
