April 10, 2020: First, I hope that you are all keeping well and safe in these challenging times. The global situation is changing the way we live, work and communicate with each other. We've all fallen a few levels down on Maslow's pyramid of needs, focusing on survival, either literally if we've fallen ill, or economically as for many of us our work has been significantly impacted.
Here at Screenplay Unlimited, like everyone else in the industry, we have had to think, re-tool and adapt. The recent world events have led us to put some of our future plans in the fast lane: we are now ready to deliver all our workshops online!
Our first online workshop will take place next month, starting on the 25th of May. It's a recently updated version of our Writing a Successful TV Series module, organised for Creative Europe Desk Ireland Media Office Galway, with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland. The selection for this workshop is now closed, but we are hoping to be able to offer new online options soon, so stay tuned.
This module was originally designed as a 2-day live event, but we have decided to deliver it over four half-days, to make the online experience more enjoyable. One-to-one meetings to discuss some of the projects will be held on the 29th, also online. I'm very much looking forward to this world first!
To sum it up, all our workshops and courses can now be delivered online. This includes our 3-day Advanced Development Workshop, the 2-day extension modules on thrillers, comedies, animations and TV Series, as well as shorter presentations. Don't hesitate to contact us for more information.
A big thank you to the selected participants who have agreed to this online shift, and to the first organizations to join us on this online adventure:
