Stephen Cleary’s screenwriting workshop is ALIIIIVE this October


Later this month the experienced writer/producer Stephen Cleary will be in the fair city of film to provide two intriguing workshops on interest to budding storytellers on screen. Running next week with Film Network Ireland, the workshops will provide an opportunity to advance their knowledge of story structure, genre writing and more.

Stephen Cleary has been a film and television professional for over twenty years, working in Europe, North America and Australasia, with occasional forays into Asia. He has worked as a feature producer, television producer/director, educator and screenwriter. He has developed many feature films from inception to production, and many have won international festival prizes. In recent years he developed the Venice Golden Lion winning feature Sweet Country from conception to production, and was lead consultant on the Emmy Award winning feature documentary What Happened Miss Simone?

It’s Alive! is a 2 day horror screenwriting workshop, taking place from the 26th – 27th October. From DBS on Balfe Street, Cleary will go into the mechanics of horror storytelling. This workshop lays out what a writer, director, producer or developer needs to know about the Horror genre, from precisely how the writer scares their audience, to the common internal structure of most horror stories, to the nightmarish gallery of horror antagonists and how they resemble or differ from each other. Plus an in-depth dive into the enduring fascination of the ghost story.

Tickets for this screenwriting workshop event are available now from Eventbrite.
