Screenwriting Masterclass with Pat Higgins

October 22, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm

Pat Higgins Screenwriting Masterclass

Ever wanted to write a movie or a TV show?

Acclaimed British screenwriter, director and lecturer Pat Higgins will be taking you through the tricks and techniques of successful screenwriting in his special one-day masterclass. Higgins has written and directed three internationally distributed micro-budget horrors, and has branched out with his award-winning mockumentary The Devil’s Music which won Best Independent Feature at the Festival of Fantastic Film in 2008. For the last eight years, Pat Higgins has brought his years of experience and wisdom to various colleges and universities, lecturing on screenwriting and idea generation. Although horror remains his own screenwriting preference, rest assured that this masterclass is just as useful whatever your chosen genre!

Everything from creating characters to idea generation, the one-day crash course unlike any other will teach you how to get those first words onto paper all the way to constructing an emotionally satisfying ending. With jam-packed inside information to make sure that your screenplay doesn’t fall at the final hurdle.

So bring along your sense of humour and a good old-fashioned notepad or your tablet computer, and prepare to turbo-boost your writing career like never before!

Be sure to bring a notepad (be that a tablet computer or good old-fashioned paper) and a sense of humour, and prepare to turbo-boost your writing career like never before!
