Screenwriting workshop with Ryan Davis


Year 11 Film Studies students took part in a screenwriting workshop on the last day of term. Screenwriter Ryan Davis talked to them about characterisation, genre and how to get started…by writing lots! Students created some very unusual and imaginative concepts including an animated cartoon about a giraffe and a monkey fleeing the Congo for cooler weather elsewhere, a troubled artist who can paint the future, and a ghost desperate to find out what killed him! The students behaved impeccably and will hopefully produce some excellent ideas for their next piece of coursework; writing the opening two minutes of a new film they have devised.
