Veny was fabulous

The first session of our screenwriting workshop showed us that Bev’s choice of Veny Armanno as presenter was inspired. He brought a thorough knowledge of the current industry and its secret language and protocols to us in a way that kept us enthralled for the whole day.

Veny has so much to teach us that we asked him to start half an hour earlier in our second session so that we can fit more in. Saturday 22 September now starts at 9.30.

His promised, Writing  your film treatment is available now.

We have been very lucky in securing an Regional Arts Development Fund grant from the Queensland Arts Council and Redland City Council to run a workshop on screenwriting. We are also very grateful for the support of the Redland Arts Council and the Australian Screen Industry Network. It will be conducted by respected University of Queensland lecturer Dr Veny Armanno.

Previous workshops at the Queensland Writers Centre elicited these very positive responses.

  • “Happy with the day. Enjoyed Armanno’s experience and his participatory style of workshop”
  • “I realised a few things – he really helped the penny drop for me about character”
  • “Good mix of humour and information. Great exercises that put a new slant on how to approach a new story idea. He made it seem so much simpler, more clean-cut process.”

The program Dr Armanno offers includes: The Contemporary Screenplay, Telling Stories the Feature Film Way, Writing your Film Treatment, Adapting for the Screen, Writing for Low Budget Film and The Business of being a Screenwriter. Sounds exciting and practical.

Join us on two consecutive Saturdays – September 15 and 22 from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm for this exciting workshop at the Victoria Point Library. With the grant, costs have been minimised and are $60 for the two days with an optional personal script assessment on the 29th for an extra $50 fee (to be paid with your script.)

The workshop will cater to only 25 participants and already there has been great interest; so get in early
