Pulse College to hold Screenwriting and Scriptwriting course commencing May 16
17 Apr 2015 : Seán Brosnan
Will commence Saturday, May 16 and run for five consecutive Saturdays
Pulse College will hold a Screenwriting and Scriptwriting course which will commence on Saturday, May 16 and run for five consecutive Saturdays.

In this intensive workshop, attendees will learn how to get their ideas down on paper and turn them into film scripts or proposals with practical exercises and personal feedback from Pulse’s course tutors and renowned professional scriptwriter, Tom Hall.

Tom has worked with many leading film industry figures in Ireland and has previously taught scriptwriting and filmmaking courses at Collaiste Dhulaigh, NUI Galway, The Factory, The Gaiety School of Acting, Filmbase and the Irish Writer’s Centre.

His best known work is ‘Bachelors Walk’ (2000-06), a comedy/drama series for Accomplice Television which was funded by RTÉ, the IFB and BBC Choice. It ran for three series and and won the IFTA award for best television show in 2002. Tom was one of three co-creators/writers/directors on all twenty episodes. He also wrote and directed the film ‘Sensation’ (nominated for three IFTA Awards and the six part comedy series ‘Trivia’ for RTÉ.

This screenwriting & scriptwriting course provides students with a supportive environment that allows their natural story-telling talent to shine through. The course has an interactive and proactive narrative approach rather than focusing on theory. Participants’ own ideas and skills as a writer will be encouraged in a fun environment as part of the course.

This scriptwriting course will enable students to:

  • Write great scripts and generate filmic ideas
  • Be creative with writing exercises.
  • Have confidence in their abilities
  • Use correct script formats and layouts
  • Understand how the industry works
  • Receive and provide feedback.
  • Understand how to apply for film funding
  • Promote their film script, and themselves
  • Network in the film industry and know where and how to make contacts

This Screenwriting and Scriptwriting course commences on Saturday, May 16. More information can be seen here.
