Keen to develop an idea you’ve had for a documentary but need some support wrangling it into shape before pitching? Structuring the uncertain can seem like an impossible task especially as often the journey or outcome is unknown until the editing room. Join local Screenwriter Director and accomplished Ob-doc Documentarian Pete Gleeson for a one-day workshop designed to help each participant identify the focus angle and potential narrative journey of their fledgling (or partly developed) concept and transform it into a pitch and one-page treatment.Participants will then be invited back the following week to pitch their ideas to a panel of Industry Professionals from the documentary field for feedback and advice on how to take the project forward.This workshop is ideal for new & emerging screenwriters and filmmakers.Time & Dates: Saturday 25 November 10am-4pm & Thursday 30 November 6pm – 9pmVenue: The Fielder St Creative Level 2 30 Fielder St East Perth 6004Cost: $100 (AWG Members) $150 (Non-Members)Gleeson is the WA-based Writer/Director Editor and Co-producer of the critically-acclaimed observational documentary Hotel Coolgardie www.hotelcoolgardiethefilm.com.
