Script Writing Courses
The Film Academy Provides Six Months Full Time Course & Three Months Certified Course in Screenplay Writing.
The screenplay is the basic backbone of all film making. That's the reason we believe in learning-by-doing and students explore in depth the narrative short film format, from concept and character to dialogue. A proportion of your scripts are selected to go through intensive workshops (script editing and written feedback) until they are ready to go into production. Students learn early on in the course that in the film business “writing is rewriting” and so modeling industry practice takes priority during the development period
