Do you ever think about writing a screenplay?
Charlottetown, April 10, 2013–Whether you’re thinking about it or you’ve got a couple under your belt, this workshop is a unique opportunity for emerging and professional and writers to develop new skills. Women in Film and Television–Atlantic (WIFT-AT) and the Island Media Arts Coop (IMAC) are jointly sponsoring two days of lectures and conversation with Hollywood producer, director, author, Bill Boyle, on the craft of writing the picture perfect screenplay. This workshop is an extension of the PEI Screenwriters’ Bootcamp.
Bill Boyle is an award winning screenwriter, University of California Extensions Instructor in screenwriting and author of The Visual Mindscape of the Screenplay. He has been rated by Creative Screenwriting Magazine among the top 10% of Script Analysts and Consultants, and he has been involved in the film industry in both Canada and the U.S. for over 25 years as a writer, director, agent, producer, story editor and mentor.
Mr. Boyle will be mentoring a group of writers during the PEI Screenwriters’ Bootcamp and is extending his stay in PEI in order to deliver this two-day workshop. During the workshop, participants will learn the fundamentals of writing visually–the essence of the perfect script! These sessions are suitable for all levels of writers and do not require special training or experience.
All WIFT members in attendance will be eligible to WIN their $100 registration fee. Draw will take place during the workshop.
Participants can choose to attend one or both days, as content of day one will reveal the most basic and fundamental truths about cinema and a unique approach to writing for film; and day two will include a recap of day one along with an exploitation of the visual aspects of story and ways to enhance the overall storytelling experience as well as a question and answer session on everything from how to write the kinetic logline to how to sell your script.
