I came across the course through a chance recommendation from a long-lost friend and had little idea about quite how esteemed, professional and fascinating it would be. With Phil and his guest speakers, you’re among screenwriting royalty but these royals are generous with their knowledge and not just their smiles – though there are plenty of those too.
It’s a fun weekend. Busy but hugely enjoyable and I learned everything I thought I wanted to plus a lifetime’s worth of knowledge shared about a craft and a business I’ve obsessed about but never fully understood. If you are serious about screenwriting as a career or you just want to learn to write screenplays for fun while being encouraged by the best in the business and goaded by a pile of a billion biscuits, this is the course for you. Fruit, water and biscuits are included.
