Day Five (Sunday 1st December 2024) // Intensive Development Day with Mentors

Objective: To form a writing group that will stay in contact for the rest of the Talent Campus and to get professional mentoring.
Location: Ealing Studios, London W5 5EP
Date: Sunday 1st December 2024

Spend the whole day writing, refining, and re-imagining with a team of six other writers and a professional screenwriting mentor. You will work directly on your story, script, and characters as well as offer insight and advice to the other five members in your writing team. We will start early and coffee will be in plentiful supply.

You will leave with a detailed synopsis / story beat sheet, ready for your first writing period. It is expected that you will maintain contact with your writing group and mentor during this period, to maintain focus, offer and receive feedback, and build lasting relationships.

The day will wind up with Chris Jones recapping on the objectives for first writing period as well as bringing the ignition phase to an extraordinary and unforgettable conclusion.
