Programme Overview

What is screenwriting?

The story is in your head, but what sells it to the audience is the screenplay, the script. At Whistling Woods International Virtual Academy, we’ll teach you how to successfully transfer that story you have in your mind to the paper, and eventually to the big screen. A screenplay is the blueprint that keeps everyone working on the project on track. In essence, this is where a movie starts and thus, this is where we’ll start our journey to understanding filmmaking.
