Online TV Series Workshop for Screen Skills Ireland and Screen Skillnet – SCREENPLAY Unlimited

Online TV Series Workshop for Screen Skills Ireland and Screen Skillnet

I had a fantastic time delivering one of my TV Series workshop for Screen Skills Ireland and Screen Skillnet last week. The participants were a wonderful group of nearly forty experienced writers, directors, creative producers, showrunners and story editors with a background in film, TV or animation.

This was a hybrid workshop combining around 10 hours of self-led training content based on my online course Writing a Successful TV Series and a live element composed of four Q&A sessions as well as hands-on group work on project development. One-to-one meetings are now being organised for those who wanted direct feedback on their project(s).

This was the first time that participants played the "Writers' Room Game", a recent addition to the online learning experience based on course progress and quiz answers. It's entirely optional, so those who weren't into games could ignore it, but many found it motivating and entertaining.

Feedback was so overwhelmingly positive (thanks everyone for your kind words!) that we're talking about organising another workshop in June or July, so if you're based in Ireland, watch this space...

Many thanks to Grainne Bennett (Screen Skills Ireland) and Barbara Deignan (Screen Skillnet) for making this happen.

Here are a few testimonials from the participants of this workshop:

Great!

I did this course online and loved it from start to finish. I think it gives writers a very clear understanding of some really useful tools which can be used to design a story/storylines or to diagnose why a story might not be working and how to fix it. I loved having the ability to pause and rewind and take notes at my own pace. I also found the quizzes at the end of each module and the feedback on right/wrong answers super useful. I think I will come back again and again to all I’ve learned here. [Writing a Successful TV Series Online Course for Screen Skill Ireland and Screen Skillnet, March 2021]

A deep dive into story structure

“Emmanuel’s course is like a deep dive into story structure. You think you’ve got it mastered and then you realise how much more there is to learn. I feel so much more equipped as a screenwriter and script reader after this course.” [Writing a Successful TV Series Online Course for Screen Skill Ireland and Screen Skillnet, March 2021]

Excellent course for those who work with story

Excellent course for those who work with story – writers, directors and producers. Goes direct to the fundamentals which can get lost in ‘development jargon’. Can help kickstart a project revision or inspire a new one. Emmanuel is an engaging and insightful teacher.
