Writing for Film and Television

Gaby Chiappe



10:00am 1h
John Mackintosh Hall

Without writers actors would have nothing to say, but what does a screenwriter actually do? Sharing the personal experiences of a career spanning two decades, screenwriter Gaby Chiappe talks about what it really means to write for film and television. Using clips and examples she explores what goes into the making of screen drama and addresses key questions - what’s the difference between plot and story? What makes good dialogue? How do you deal with deadlines? What’s the worst line you’ve ever written? (spoiler alert - It’s a stinker).

For people interested in knowing more about how screen drama is put together, as well as for those interested in screenwriting themselves.
