The Script Sessions

7Mar_11

The Script Sessions is a program of intensive one-day script workshops with professional screen writing Editor and Analyst, Karel Segers slicing and dicing screenplays to bring out the best in each story.  Five writers will be chosen for each workshop to present their scripts for analysis, with 10 spots reserved for participants who want to learn from this process by observing the transformation.

Each script will be scrutinized for concept, story, character, theme, style and script presentation. The writers will walk away with in-depth notes and recommended steps for further development.

There are three sessions this year on Saturday 22 June, 7 September and 7 December 2013 with 5 writers and 10 participants at each workshop. Writers can revisit the process more than once and observers are encouraged to apply the knowledge gained through this unique process to their writing. Applicants must submit a logline, half page synopsis and the first ten pages of their screenplay for review. Observers don’t need to apply, just pre-book and bring your notebook.
