CREATIVE SCRIPTWRITING (article first published : 2000-05-6)

Aspirant writers who would like to explore their storytelling talent and develop their craft can attend the Cape Town based Writing Studio’s informal educational weekend workshop at the University of Natal at the beginning of June. The writing workshop explores the exciting world of screenwriting and contemporary filmmaking.

It is great training ground for beginning screenwriters and a good place for more experienced writers to polish their skills. It is also idea for writers who are interested in writing a novel or stage play, or write for television.

During the workshop the writers will work on exercises to get started on a script, polish their skills or begin to learn the fundamentals of the craft. They will explore the world of the writer, examine ideas and character, look into structure and format, and study the basics of film analysis. The group will also attend a film currently showing on circuit and analyse it as part of the course. The workshop will enable writers to complete the successful draft of a screenplay for a full length feature film in accordance with international regulations and standards.

The workshop will be presented at Studio 4, Drama and Performance Studies, Jubilee Lane, University of Natal, in the afternoons between 14h00 and 17h00 on June 3, 4, 10 and 11. More details from Daniel Dercksen on (021) 683 3686 or email writingstudio@excite.com
