Part of our expansion includes the new course options for screenwriters under the expert guidance of Barry McEvoy. Next week we will be presenting “FIRST LOOK” featuring excerpts from 8 selected full length screenplays that will be shared on Thursday evening, 7:30pm, April 28th, 2016 at Doyles Pub, 9 College Street, Dublin 2, in the downstairs lounge.
The writers for this “Screenwriting- Experienced Level” course were selected from submitted writing samples or from “Introduction to Screenwriting” course participants. Class size was limited to eight students maximum in order to provide the highest quality of tuition. Over the past 3 months, they have been writing under the inspired guidance of Barry. More than just a formulaic re-hashing of Hollywood writing advice, this course has creatively delved into the individual voices of these writers to bring original, dynamic and engaging scripts to fruition. Writers include: Jack Beglin, Paul Keany, Aideen McBride, James O’Connell, Louise O’Toole, Marian Ryan, Chiara Viale and Michael Walsh.
