If you've come along to one of the workshops you'll have seen the use of additional materials. These are listed here because they assume you'll have done the workshop, so there's not a lot of explanation of their use. We'll also put the slides and downloads for the workshops here.

Screenplay format style guide

If you decide to eschew professional screenwriting software, for whatever reason, you still need to ensure your script is formatted properly for presentation. There are countless style guides out there but the neatest, most reasonable and easiest to follow for someone new to the trade is in the form of a sample script prepared by the people behind the Nicholl Fellowships at the Oscars. Plagiarism being the sincerest form of both flattery and indolence we have put their example here as an easy link.
