An introduction to the illusion that is the silver screen, guiding you through the fundamental principles of writing a film screenplay.

About this event

Session Three: Film as unconscious

Dream, memory and imagination. Tapping into our fundamental experiences as human beings to write for the screen. Exploring the aesthetics of dream, memory and imagination in film sequences.

Course outline:

This 10-month course is aimed at anyone new to Screenwriting and takes participants back to the humble beginnings of Cinema to explore the very essence of what Film is and what it can do.

Writer and former Film Studies teacher Lucy Kaufman examines some of the most important concepts in writing for the screen, encouraging beginner screenwriters to delve into their own human resources in order to create visual stories, scenes, plots and characters that will work well on screen, and will have a powerful emotional impact on a cinema audience. Introducing basic film language and how to format a screenplay on the page, the workshops combine analysis of film clips and scripted screenplays with practical written exercises and discussion.

Once you have signed up for this session you will receive an email confirmation containing instructions and guidance on how to set up and join the live session on Microsoft Teams. You will also receive a unique code to gain access to class activities on Google Classroom.

If you are not sure if this class is for you or would like more information, please contact us to discuss. Ask the organiser or email: [email protected].

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
