Script – Screen

Script – Screen Workshop itinerary

Overview:

How do you engage your viewer with the visual image? How do you turn those words into pictures that influence? How do you convey your brand and reduce your reliance on external providers? On this workshop we blend theory with practical. Over the duration of the course you will start with an idea, see it evolve in many manifestations – see it influenced by narrative and brand, budget, time and your peers, and see it evolve into a pitch and a film that you get to shoot and edit.

Script to Screen

The story and storyboarding – creating a clear message

  • Writing a script
  • Keeping an idea fresh and on-brand
  • Time – keeping your content succinct
  • Managing expectations and keeping on-budget
  • Realising the story onto video
  • Creating a process for producing content quickly
  • What equipment to buy or hire
  • How do you edit and distribute your film
  • What if your CEO is no good in front of the camera?
  • How to find the time to do the filming and the day job

From the start of your decision making process, we train you how to utilise video content specifically for your brand and company. We then train you how to script, film, produce and present your story. We use our own case studies from TV programmes – many of which you will have seen – to explain what works and what doesn’t.
