At Prelude, you can learn how to write that film or TV Drama from a classroom or virtual class.
With our comprehensive modules, you will discover the main elements of scriptwriting - concept, plot, structure, world-of-the-story, script-formatting, character and dialogue.
You will also learn how to get your script produced - whip your script into shape, find out what other documents you need in your briefcase, how to approach the film industry, how to get their attention, and what you can expect to get paid. So, everything you need to get your script turned into a movie or series. 
Because, at the end of the day, that's what we all want.
Our courses include classes on 
  • Story, character and world development
  • Basics of script-writing software
  • Loglines, synopses and treatments
  • Funding
  • Connecting with producers
Details of upcoming courses will be announced soon.
