COME JOIN US for our FIRST LOOK sharing of screenplays at 7:00pm on Thursday February 9th 2023 at Doyles Pub, Upstairs, 9 College Green, Dublin 2
No reservation needed, no charge to enter, just come and enjoy!
We will be sharing a reading of selected scenes from new screenplays from our Experienced Level Screenwriting course taught by Barry McEvoy. Professional actors will be performing the roles. Featured writers include: Martina McGrath, Michael Anthony McKiernan, Tommy Hughes, Ian McCall, Conor Purcell, Shelley Coleman and Sinead Ralston.
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 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.
