The Get into Film and Television: Scripts, Screenwriting and TV Producing course was written by one of Australia's most successful television producers and provides you with opportunities to pursue roles within the expanding world of network television.
With over 100 channels, and more launching all the time, there is an increasing need for people to work behind the scenes.
This course takes you through every possible aspect of entry level television, from getting a job as a TV extra or show runner to starting a lucrative career as a producer, director or on-camera presenter.
You then explore the world of scriptwriting, learning how to write for television, film and video. You will actually develop your own screenplay and even learn how to market it.

Scriptwriting involves many areas. A scriptwriter can write scripts for television, radio, political speeches, VIP presentations, film, video stage, music even games. Scriptwriting is not limited to just writing scripts for the movies.
A script is the text or manuscript (dialogue, instructions, etc.) for a movie, television program, radio program, and so on. 'Script' comes from the word 'manuscript' so it's a bit like the manuscript for a book except that it's for a different form of media.
Screenwriting is actually writing a script for the screen (movie screen, television screen, video screen, even a computer screen). This is the difference between scriptwriting and screenwriting. This course focuses on writing scripts for television, film and video's screenwriting.
