Industry News

Link To The Script Factory

I was reading over at The Script Factory about script writing training - what is it good for? Lucy Scher argues that screenwriting training that prioritises individual creativity, and doesn't focus on craft is likely to be popular - but isn't likely to produce good screenwriters.

I do agree with the above, in the respect that I think it's probably best to already have found your voice, to have written a lot before you learn the mechanics of screen/play/radio structure, or it would seem like a battle between how or what to write and in which format to put it all.
