Flying Turtle Productions (Formerly the Abbey School of Drama)

This course is for those who have taken the “Intro to Screenwriting” 6-week course with us, or those who have some previous experience writing screenplays. A three page screenwriting sample will be required for all applicants.

By the end of the 10 weeks you will have completed either
1. The first draft of an Hour Long television pilot episode
2. A half-hour sitcom pilot and Show-bible
3. 60 pages of a Feature length film.

A commitment of 6 pages per week will be needed to achieve this objective. The course will culminate in a public reading of selected scenes from each student’s script.

Course Overview
Classes 1-4, and 6: Group Sessions covering structure, development, and the business of marketing screenplays.
Classes 5, 7 and 8: One-to-one mentoring and guidance in seeing your first draft through so individual appointments will replace group classes.
Classes 9: Return to group class and prep for public reading on the evening of the 10th class presentation dates and times being finalised.

Class size will be limited to only 8 students maximum in order to provide the highest level of tuition so apply early!!
