Each video in this course offers English subtitles, which are enabled by default but can be disabled.
You can also control the playback speed by clicking on the gear icon in the playback bar and selecting a different speed (up to 15% down or 25% up).
In most training videos, there is a headshot video in one corner. If you find it distracting, feel free to stick a post-it on it, I won't be offended!
All the slides and a transcript of the video can be displayed in the 'materials' tab for each topic. It's not possible to download any of these documents.
However, all the slides shown during the course are included in your group materials, located in the 'materials' tab in your group page. If you're doing this course as part of a live workshop, the slides might be dripped during the workshop but you'll have access to all of them at the latest at the end of the workshop.
Even if quizzes are not your thing, give them a chance! They are designed to entertain and motivate, but also to give you a way to check how much you actually remember from each module. They also give you instant feedback, telling you why each answer was correct or not and suggesting which topic to revisit if you got it wrong.
In the top right corner, you'll find a menu that gives you direct access to the Creative Freedom Game progress. You'll find more info on the game in your group page. Playing the game is optional, so you don't have to spend any time on it if that's not your thing.
Taking notes as you go through the course is highly recommended, as it might help you feel more active. It can also help to process and memorise the information if you write it in your own words.
When logged-in, you'll find at the bottom of all course pages a handy widget that speeds up the process of taking e-notes. These private notes synchronise automatically between your devices and can be printed or exported as MS Word documents. Make sure you do either before the end of the course as these notes are only accessible by you, from within the course.
Some like to pause the video frequently and take advantage of the subtitles as they write their notes, either on the content or on their own project. Others like to watch the same video more than once to take all the content in.
Going through the course can take a lot longer than adding together the minimum amount of time indicated for each topic / module. Please take this into account when planning your progress.
This course contains around 15 hours of self-led content in total and it's very detailed. If you're an active note-taker, it can take up to thirty hours or more to complete the course.
So schedule at least a week to go through it if you can spend half the day or more studying, and two weeks if you can only dedicate a couple of hours a day. That's assuming you've done all the film watching before you start.
If you only have access to the first three training modules, 'A New Framework for Developing Screenplays', it's around 3.5 hours of content, so it might take you up to seven hours to go through it. Please make sure that you set aside at least a couple of days so that you don't have to rush through the content.
Last but not least, you'll find in the bottom right corner an accessibility tool that offers a text-to-speech feature along with various modes: epilepsy safe, visually impaired, cognitive disability, ADHD friendly, blindness... Most text-heavy pages on the website (including this one) also have a pre-generated audio version available at the bottom of the page.
Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any suggestions to help make this website even more accessible, as this is important to us.

We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email support at screenplayunlimited dot com
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. For any assistance, please reach out to support at screenplayunlimited dot com
