Aspirant and new script writers of Nelson Mandela Bay and surrounds are being given the opportunity to hone their skills.

One Blood Sounds will be hosting a script writing workshop on the 30th of September at Gallery Noko in Russel Road, Central, Port Elizabeth under the auspices of the National Film Video Foundation programme.

The objective is to craft story ideas into working scripts which will appeal to producers and programme makers.

Hosting the first workshop will be Johannesburg script editor Mokopi Shale.

“Her workshop will help anyone who has a story to tell to transform their ideas and vision into a bankable script,” says Nomakhomazi Dewavrin of One Blood Sounds.

Shale began her career in the media industry as a radio drama actress in 1998. She then worked as a television presenter, researcher and script writer for Take 5, a SABC youth educational magazine programme, and later became the associate producer for the show.

She has also written and published three popular fiction romance novels for Sapphire Press.

Mokopi also worked for a period of a year and half as a story-liner on South Africa’s most watched soap opera Generations, from 2010 to 2012.

She currently works as a freelance writer and script editor, and runs her own production company - Fuze Films.

The workshops will teach aspirant writers how to turn their story into a film script, and how this should then be packaged. At the end of the workshops One Blood Should will choose the best script and this will be made into a short film.

Scriptwriters wanting to attend the free workshop should submit a five-page script depicting a scene that would typically take place in Port Elizabeth.

“Humour is what we are looking for,” says Dewavrin.
