The Screenwriter's Edge

Online Tutorials, Workshops, Courses, and Masterclasses For The New & Novice Screenwriter

As a professional filmmaker who specialises in short films, I frequently receive scripts from aspiring writers. Having worked in this field for over three decades, I've had the opportunity to read and review hundreds of screenplays, both short and feature-length. 

Through The Screenwriter's Edge, I aim to provide you with valuable insights into the common mistakes I've encountered in almost all of the scripts I've read throughout my career as a screenwriter in the short film genre, as well as tips, tricks and hints on how to get your script done from idea to the page.

As someone who has been producing short films and working with scripts for the past 30 years, I would like to share some tips and hints on how to create a good screenplay. These are my personal opinions on what I have found to be the most effective approaches for producing short film scripts that really work.

2. The Importance of Dialogue in a Screenplay
