In this workshop, we learned all about writing a full-length feature film and started on our very own screenplay! In this workshop, we conceptualized writing for film using the screenplay medium – diving into images, sound, physical action and dialogue. With entertainment and streaming platforms rising in popularity, the film industry is always in need of creative and diverse screenwriters that reflect our real world. This workshop was themed: escape.
