Scottish Screen (now Creative Scotland) commissioned the Writers’ Factory Feature course syllabus in 2010 to give writers with extant screenwriting skills an opportunity to assimilate contemporary thinking on the craft, broaden their understanding of current industry requirements and develop a low-budget feature film screenplay within a structured environment.
The course takes place over 22 weeks (plus 2 additional 3-week writing breaks), incorporating a mixture of theory and practice. Students are introduced to recent developments in the craft of feature film screenwriting; will participate in project-based story workshops with course peers; and develop and write a first draft of a low budget feature film.
The course is delivered by multi-award winning Edinburgh-based film and television producer, screenwriter and experienced Writers' Factory lecturer, Nigel R. Smith. Trained at the Media Business School in Spain and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in the US, Nigel’s many and varied credits include children's space adventure sitcom Intergalactic Kitchen and Tartan Shorts, Cry for Bobo, for the BBC.
