WRITE YOUR MICRO-BUDGET FEATURE
NEW ONLINE COURSE
With the proliferation of VOD, cable and streaming outlets there are huge new windows opening for filmmakers. Buyers are hungry for exciting content and producers crave contained stories that can be produced well on a minimal budget because they're easier to finance. So a strong script for a micro-budget film is gold dust to the industry.
But how do take your ideas and characters and write a screenplay you know for sure can be made on a micro-budget and could attract a strong cast?
How do you write a contained movie which best expresses your voice as a writer and/or director?
How do you ensure you write a marketable micro-budget script which can earn distribution in the UK and overseas in a crowded marketplace?
