“An Informative and Enjoyable Course”


written by on 26/09/2013

The course deals with every aspect that someone aspiring to become a Professional Script Reader would need to know, beginning with what makes a good script, moving onto what makes a good script report, an overview of the British Film Industry, an analysis of a script and then the best ways to gain employment as a script reader.

The course tutor led the day enthusiastically, speaking very articulately on every aspect touched upon, giving clarity and a deeper level of understanding to those things you think you know a lot about, such as the key elements to storytelling, whilst also keeping the day light and engaging.

As a student you are required to read a script before the day, which is very useful because, once the tutor has been through what makes a good screenplay and good script report, you, the pupil, are then asked to apply this to the script everyone has read. This is a great way of re-inforcing what has been taught and clarifying the difference between thinking you know what makes a good script and having to argue your point in a professional and relevant way. The course also provides you with a script to read and report on afterwards, in order to obtain feedback on your work which is an invaluable element to the process.

All in all this was a fantastic course, which I would recommend to anyone who has an interest in becoming a script reader or is trying to write screenplays for submission to professional script readers.
