Film and television are so much part of our world that we can’t imagine life without them. They entertain us, inform us, educate us. They inspire us, terrify us, enrich our lives. They introduce us to a world so much bigger than ourselves that sometimes what appears on our screens is simply… awesome!
All About Writing’s experienced teachers/mentors will teach you the skills to write your screenplay and will mentor you through the writing process in a kind, friendly and supportive environment.
