Creative Writing Masterclass: How to write a movie – Rob Young, Writer-in-Residence – Friday 3rd June
HOW TO WRITE A MOVIE
In this warm and witty lecture, Rob will reveal how anyone can write a
movie, even non-writers. Because the thing is, we’ve all watched 9,000
films. We all know what a bad movie feels like. We’re experts already.
Everything else is just details. A crash course in screenwriting from a
local boy made good.
Rob Young was born and bred in South Shields. He is an award-winning
writer and BAFTA Screenplay Judge. His feature film won the main prize
at London’s Raindance Film Festival. He has since been commissioned to

Prize winning novella, The Old Man and the Sea, won the Award for

playwright”, The Times.
