Sinema will be working with the Singapore Media Academy (SMA), to conduct various film courses over 2010.  Check out one of the upcoming courses in late January: Produce a Script from a Client’s Brief.

It is designed to equip participants with an understanding of the principles of writing that a scriptwriter needs to master.

This Course covers the principles of screenwriting from a creative and industrial perspective. The skills include the ability to interpret a producer’s brief, understand the essential vision of the project as instructed by the producer and the production restraints such as budget, technological, and audience requirements, that the project has to work within.
