The Actors Centre

A Beginners Guide to Writing Treatments

WHAT IS IT? This workshop considers the treatment (or the outline, proposal/one pager etc) for film, television and radio, and how to write and rewrite one.

HOW WILL IT WORK? The first part of the workshop we will explore treatments: what treatments are for, the types of treatment, who reads them, how to write one and how to pitch your project in meetings. The second part will discuss, with examples, treatments and outlines, the basic principles and the crucial areas of treatment writing, such as the importance of the inner story and the exploration of treatment style and language.

WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? For anyone one starting in the industry this workshop will provide an insight into the steps needed to get a project from idea through to treatment and commission. The participant will not only be prepared for the writing treatments but what is expected from the writer from the producers of radio, television and film. Price: £30
