My lessons will cover an intro to scriptwriting and correct formatting, as well as going in depth in terms of understanding and writing within the 3 act structure, building characters, developing worlds, and understanding genres. I will also cover how to create supporting documents such as outlines and treatments, and how to pitch your script.
My teaching method is to find out what skills/knowledge my students need to know. I have taught 2nd year, 3rd year and 4th years Master students. I tailor my classes to what is required of the students. I am a good listener and a positive influence. I am driven to get results but also tactful and supportive when required to be.
I use Blended Learning in my work, that is a mixture of digital and face to face techniques. I work with all levels of ability from beginners to advanced and SEN students. I create an individual learning plan, tailor made for each student. I can also offer careers advice. I am a fully qualified tutor and a member of the Education Workforce Council Wales.
I work with people of all ages, however, I mostly have experience with older aged primary school children and young adults. I teach screenwriting via a practical method; I believe that people learn best when they're working on something they care about. So students will develop ideas and write at least a first if not second, third and fourth draft with me.
My teaching lessons are open to all, but would be particularly beneficial to those studying film studies/ film analysis at GCSE and A-Level.
The film world is one where one needs to understand the whole process in order to be good at one particular section. It is one where the student needs to be encouraged to find their specific talent. Discuss ideas, gain input, then be disciplined in the approach in order to deliver the right result. When writing stories or scripts get the idea down on paper first even if it I not perfect.
From graduating as an Actor from both Dundee and Angus and on a part time Scholarship at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, I proceeded to establish myself in the Scottish Industry. I worked in industry leading Theatres and experienced a wealth of on the job learning. Now, having just graduated with a Masters in Filmmaking, I want to share that knowledge and experience.
I am willing to teach college/university students who are wishing to get to know the ropes of screenwriting for television and hope to help anyone who needs that push to try and get themselves into the industry. As a fun and energetic university student I have a very relaxed teaching environment with flexible hours.
My teaching methods are most suitable for those who wish to pursue a career in screenwriting as I can work with you to teach you the basic craft, narrative techniques and storytelling or workshop your current projects and ideas to help you turn an idea into a first draft over an agreed period of time.
I teach from experience and tried and tested methods to make learning more intuitive.
My teaching method is a balance between theory and practical. Anything from equipment and practial work such as editing and screenwriting, to theory about different eras of film, I can help and provide an easier way to grasp difficult areas of study.
I believe that in order for a passion in filmmaking to be fostered, fun is an important quality. Creativity blossoms in the right environment. I believe in finding the interest you have in film and working to your strengths rather then pointing out your weaknesses. We all have strengths and I will insure that you have confidence in those strengths as well as additional knowledge going forward.
We will look at key areas of script writing for television, including structure, acts, themes, character and genre.
My teaching method is getting to know each student individually and expressing what makes us all different, unique, and special
My focus is on story and characters, but most importantly, I'll teach you how to take a script to industry standard using the Hollywood structure. Later, when you know how to use it, you can break it and play with it to your heart's desire.
To understand well analysis is key. When it comes to writing you must to read as a writer to be able to apply the skill.
Throughout my teaching career I have become able to adapt to a wide range of teaching situations from lecturing to large numbers of students to one-to-one tutorials. I have a strong awareness of the way certain students learn in a variety of ways and at different rates.
I appreciate students that are goal oriented, with a certain drive and devotion to film writing--and who possess loads of passion. I love the work I've been doing for over a decade now, and teaching others how to write for film is deeply satisfying. The first thing I like to establish is your experience and skill level.
My teaching method is all about learning by doing. We put the equipment in your hands as much as possible and show you how to use it in fun, easy to grasp exercises. Lessons are tailored made depending on goals of the student. If you have no goals then that's ok - we will develop them together so that you work towards completing an actual film project.
Learning through practice and theory. 15 minutes theory and introduction, then 50 minutes of practice workshop (depends on the area you want to develop - camera, lights, production, editing ).Homework is always a must and it's usually helps you develop and repeat what you learned during the classes.
I very much believe in the maxim that good writing can't be taught. What *can* be taught is an approach and a process in order to maximise the potential of your story and your means of expressing it. I tailor my tutoring to the level and interests of the writers I work with, but broadly speaking my lessons involve stepping through the key process elements that make up a good script or screenplay.
I am A Screenplay writer based in London, I write scripts for feature film and TV. I write mainly in the psychological horror thriller genre. I have written A horror script for feature film which I am Pitching at the moment.
I am a film and television graduate and filmmaker with experience in the industry. My course will teach you the ins and outs of screenwriting, focusing on: - Format - Story Structure - Pacing - Professional Terms My aim is for my students to be able to write a professional, industry standard script for film and television.
I like to meet people and engage one on one to find the best teaching strategy. Telling stories comes naturally to us but the mechanics of writing requires a deft hand. I have the knowledge and experience to make each challenge fun and engaging.
I like to initially show the student how to do something, then let their ideas fill the pages. There are no bad ideas.
Fun, informal and knowledgeable tutor currently working in the Film/TV industry. I can assist with Film coursework at every level (A-Level, Degree etc) and offer invaluable script feedback. I can teach Film Studies at G.C.S.E. and A-level, based on students' needs as dictated by curriculum.
I like to create the lessons based on a conversation about your goals and questions. From substantive advice on adjusting a script, thinking with you about a good production-based plan of approach to get a project off the ground, to finding your own identity as a maker.

Building on existing knowledge and interests, I develop important expertise. This means that basic knowledge is taught first and build upon developing more in-depth skills. When it comes to film espacially, students should focus on a more hands on approach as fast as possible; whether through analysis movies or producing films is depending on the student in question.
My main methodology is debate, I believe that the classroom (even virtual) is a space for dialogue and horizontality. I am based on film theorists such as Andre Bazin, Jacques Aumont, Ismail Xavier and about the authors' own writings about their films.
