Advanced Screenwriting

Recurring event see all

April 15, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

This course was created for individuals that are hoping to develop their own individual writing projects in a smaller group and at a faster pace. Split into monthly lunch time meet-ups on the third Thursday of each month, this program is meant to be a safe creative workspace where writers share their work in a group setting led by instructor Nate Estabrooks. In this 4-session advanced course, writers will be guided through modules that help develop their craft and writing abilities in order to master the medium with words.

Nate Estabrooks is a graduate of the prestigious Norman Jewison Canadian Film Centre and member of the Director’s Guild of Canada. Nate Estabrooks is a workshop instructor with a wide and practical film path to draw from. As a talented feature director, VFX artist and award-winning screenwriter, he is a founding member of Space Tigers Inc, a production pipeline offering VFX and post-production services and continues to develop his toolset through 360 videos, VR storytelling and computer-generated imagery.
