Free Course for One Lucky Person!

We have an amazing free course to give away to one lucky person. This Saturday, Sean Hardie, the writer, producer and director of Not the Nine O'Clock News, is teaching a one-day workshop entitled Storytelling for Film and TV. Here's the course information and a brief description:

Storytelling for Film and TV with Sean Hardie

Saturday 27th March: 10.30am-4.30pm
There are three things, according to Sam Goldwyn, that go to make up a great film. The problem, he added, is that no-one knows what they are. Nonetheless there are resources which anyone setting out to write a screenplay or a TV script would do well to have in his or her paint box. It’s not enough to have a story –you need to know how to tell it; how to hold the attention of an audience and keep them interested and involved as the plot unfolds.
This one-day hands-on workshop explores the art and craft of screenplay storytelling for film and television; ways to create and maintain dramatic tension through the interplay of plot and character; how to play games with your characters’ – and your audience’s - emotions, assumptions and expectations. This course is suitable for anyone trying to write for film or television, but particularly for those who’ve tried and would like to do better next time.

This prize is valued at €70. For your chance to win all you have to do is tell us why you deserve to this prize. Submissions can be sent to: We'll be contacting the winner Friday March 26 so make sure to include your telephone number.
