Simon Fraser University’s acclaimed Praxis Centre will for the first time offer a workshop for aspiring screenwriters in Surrey. The six-week workshop runs Oct. 23 to Nov. 27 on Tuesdays, 6-9 p.m. at the SFU Surrey campus, and is targeted at those with ideas or scripts underway.
Instructor Belle Mott, whose first comedy, Pink Ludoos was produced by Brightlight Pictures for CityTV, will lead a small group though the creative process, with an opportunity for students to write their own short scripts or outlines for feature films.
The workshop covers the basics of story structure, character development and dialogue as well as the creative use of genre, international styles and tips on getting work produced.
Mott’s latest script, Dowry Kings, is in development with Submission Films. Her Pink Ludoos was screened in festivals in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. and won the Best Canadian Feature award at the Reel World International Film Festival in Toronto.
