Salt is hosting its first (of many we hope) training workshop. We are bringing Stephen Cleary and his renowned story structure workshop to London at a huge discount thanks to Skillset. The course consists of two workshops taking place in July and September. Filmmakers can apply separately or as a team working on the same project for a slightly lower fee per person. Dates and prices below.
This is a short intensive programme aimed at writers, directors and producers who want to give an existing or new project of any genre at any stage a rigorous structural workout. For the non-writers, getting to grips with the principles of sequence structuring in relation to both plot and character will make you a better, more critical reader and give you a set of tools you can use to help writers and your own projects in the future. Ask us for more detailed information.
This workshop takes the form of one three day workshop, a four week period working on your projects while Stephen consults via Skype and another two day workshop. And you have the option of receiving a full set of notes from Stephen at the end at a small additional cost.

This workshop is supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund, which is funded by the BFI with National Lottery funds, through the Skills Investment Funds. They are contributing nearly 60% of the course fee which should cost £1,164 per person with VAT.
For people attending as individuals it will be £378 per participant including VAT
For people attending as a team, ie more than one person working on the same project the fee will be £318 per participant including VAT.
Teams have a reduced rate as they will have the same amount of consultancy time as the individuals. Spaces are limited so please do let us know up front if you are intending to come in a team or not.
Additional notes from Stephen will be £78 per project.
