About this session
This screenwriting masterclass is all about the conjunction between character and story and how crafting well-defined and memorable characters will inspire and generate story material.
Which comes first - character or story? Should scripts be primarily plot-driven or character-driven? Our session will focus on key principles for creating story and character for screen drama, whether it’s TV or film.
This session will be delivered by Philip Shelley.
