John Yorke Story: Story for Script Development

Learn the script-development and story-shaping skills you need to thrive in the HETV drama arena

Date: 29 April 2019, 09:00 — 23 June 2019, 21:30

Learn the script-development and story-shaping skills you need to thrive in the booming HETV drama arena.

A new generation of UK high end TV (HETV) shows are transforming how TV drama is conceived and made — drama is more ambitious than ever before, requiring bigger stories and larger, more complex teams. This seven-week course, run with our partners at John Yorke Story, will give you the story-structure and note-giving skills needed to step up and thrive in this growth area of TV production.

You’ll become familiar with the key components of story structure and how to put them together to create a successful story. You’ll work out what makes stories resonate with TV audiences worldwide. You’ll master story structure, then apply those principles to diagnose and fix script problems within the context of an HETV production. Along the way you’ll develop increased judgement and self-confidence in selecting and presenting story ideas, distilling a story to its essence, working with writers, collating revisions on a script, pitching to a wider team, and giving and receiving notes.

This course has been made possible by the support of Creative Skillset, and has been approved as part of an informal or formal continuing professional development (CPD) programme.

As this is a professional development course, you may be able to get funding from your employer to do it. All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate of completion evidencing their learning and study hours.
