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 – 9pm

Venue: The Fielder St Creative, Level 2, 30 Fielder St, East Perth, 6004

Cost: $100 (AWG Members), $150 (Non-Members)
