The First Draft: 2nd Intake!
THE FIRST DRAFT, Singapore’s first year-long professional screenwriting development programme kicked off in March this year and is now well underway.
Combining residential weeks, group meetings and individual online consultations with tutors from the MA in Screenwriting at the London C0llege of Communication, the programme aims to develop screenwriters and screenplays over the course of a year to the point where the projects can be pitched to industry.
Feedback has been very strong and we are very excited about how these scripts will develop over the next 9 months.
Listen to tutors Kelly Marshall and Tessa Sheridan, from LCC, talk about the programme here.
We will be announcing details of the second year’s application process shortly. To register your initial interest, email ker.layhong[at]britishcouncil.org.sg citing FIRST in the subject line, and with your contact details. We hope you can be part of it!
THE FIRST DRAFT is collaboration between the British Council and Sinema Academy of Motion Pictures Limited, with the support of the MDA.
