About the Event

If you have an idea for a short film but don’t know where to begin, or if you have written dozens of short films that never get onto shortlists this course is for you.

Working in the BBC (BBC Short Shorts, WeirdShorts) & RTÉ (Shortcuts, Frameworks, Filmbase, Cork Film Centre & Galway Film Centre among others) Eilish commissioned well over 100 short films, many of which have gone on to garner awards & Oscar nominations. She continues to sit on many interview panels for short film. 

Over the course of four weeks you will learn to:

  • break down the elements of stories that work well in the short format. 
  • Identify key visual imagery. 
  • Write a dramatic scene. 
  • Improve your dialogue.
  • Write to the prescribed duration.
  • Pitch your idea.

Eilish will read drafts of your script and give you ongoing feedback over the duration of the course.
