Writing Course at Galway Film Centre

Idea to Script
This course is for those who have an idea for a short film and want to put it on paper. Working closely with an experienced tutor, you will be guided through traditional screenplay structure, writing exercises, pitching your idea and group readings of your work. There will also be a talk on what is the next step to take, once you have written your script. We run a short script competition with RTÉ, where 2 scripts are chosen and the filmmakers receive €10,000 each to make the script. As a participant on this course, you are automatically a member and you can enter this competition.

About the Tutor: Ivan McMahon is a filmmaker with over twenty years experience working in the Film and Television industry. He has a Masters degree in Screenwriting from the Huston School of Film. Ivan set up TWO HUNGRY FISH Productions in 2009 and has directed and co-written a number of Irish Film Board funded short films.
