Description

Learn to write your first AWESOME SCRIPT quickly and easily in this screenwriting course for beginners!


This course with a simple step-by-step approach will help you get the right skills to write your first script. It includes lessons for feature-length screenwriting and even a lesson that will let you know how to apply everything to your first short film too. Lessons are made in an easy to understand manner and you'll learn all the basics they teach at film schools.

You will learn how to find ideas, write a pitch page, how to structure your story, develop characters, write the script, how to use screenwriting software and how to battle creative blocks. I've also added document examples for you to see how each document and script looks like.

Because the theory is nothing without practice, there are special assignments for you to test out everything you'll learn. Practice makes perfect and you'll soon be able to write a script ready to be filmed.

I am updating and adding new videos regularly and you can also suggest me what you’d like to learn and can create a specific lesson from your request.

THIS IS YOUR TIME-SAVING WEAPON IF YOU WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING FAST!

"Hi Ire,

I am writing you this email to thank you for this useful course. I was a beginner in video making and scriptwriting. With your course which explained in detail but at the same time, I could also understand everything without any difficulties, you helped me move on from a beginner level.

The whole course leads you with the most basic things then the knowledge spreads in all aspects. But it's really enjoyable, especially the movie lists. You are introduced to all genres and how they are used in famous movies. Then you have to eventually write your own as well. As the course continues you are pumped with the concentrated knowledge that the director, Irenej himself gained over the years... Man! This is your time-saving weapon if you want to know everything fast! Everything is organised and put in detail just for you!

Last but not least, regardless if you are a rookie of video making or a person who just wants to know this field, I guarantee you this course is your top choice and what's even better is that an experienced movie director and screenwriter, Irenej is always in line with you to tackle your problems.”- Li Wei-Zhe, Taiwan

Hi, I’m Irenej V. Bošnjak aka IRE.

I'm an award-winning filmmaker and founder of IRE Studios. I've been professionally working in Film and TV industry for more than 10 years and before that I learned everything by trial and error, by watching tutorials and behind the scenes videos, reading filmmaking books and working on zero budget passion projects. I advanced my filmmaking skills at University and have an MA degree in Film Directing and BA in Film and Audio production.

I got 17 international awards for my first feature film, a low-budget dark comedy "How to Be a Writer". My short films were awarded and shown around the world and my commercials were played on TV stations and online.

My biggest passion in life is to continue my creative work and help aspiring filmmakers like you to create and deliver award-winning films and have a passionate support group around you. I've been mentoring filmmakers since 2014 and now it is time to share this knowledge with all of you.
