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.
