Event description
A dynamic one day workshop designed to show participants how to create a web series and start writing it!

About this Event

Come with your awesome idea. And spend the day developing your webseries...

A web series is a series of short episodes and is a great way to get attention by showcasing your dramatic or comedic work as a writer or director or actor.

But as with any show (big or small) your audience craves good storytelling. So we’ll be showing you the nuts and bolts of creating a webseries – and then digging into how to structure a kickass first episode.

If you’ve been wanting to create your own web series , but not sure how to start or if you’re on the right track then this web series workshop is for you.

Participants (that’s you, aspiring writer) will:

  • Learn proper script length for each genre (5 – 15 pages)
  • Learn how to develop a premise and compelling characters
  • Learn how to write for an inexpensive budget
  • Learn particular aspects of specific genres (comedy, drama, thrillers, etc.)
  • Learn how to create a story arc over your episodes (webisodes)
  • Get tips about how to fund your series.
  • Leave with a clear idea about what your series is about
  • Leave with an episode 1 outline.

She has a comprehensive understanding of movies, cinema history, and storytelling technique, and is effective and engaging when sharing that knowledge with her students. Kathryn is to storytelling tutors as Carlos the Jackal is to international assassins. I can't recommend her highly enough." Steve Barr - screenwriter, producer, and development executive

Kathryn has a natural ability to connect with an audience. She teaches with patience and humour and she provides cake for morning tea! I'd recommend the workshop for anyone wanting to learn more about screenwriting.” Jaquie Brown – Presenter, Actor, Screenwriter

"Loved it! Kathryn gets straight to the point and gives clear, practical advice about screenwriting. She demystifies the process." Rebecca Barry Hill - Journalist/Screenwriter
