What can you expect from this workshop?

A fun, playful approach to writing a short film, including practical activities on how to plan, write and make your own short film.

 We’ll be having a brief look at: 

  • What makes a great short film?
  • How to plan and storyboard
  • Writing dialogue for screen
  • Let's have a go! What can you film at home?

No previous experience is necessary - if you have something to film with e.g. a phone, tablet or camera, please bring this along to the workshop. If this is not possible,  you can still attend and we have other fun activities to take part in! 

You will need to have your camera and microphones on for this workshop. If you have any questions please email [email protected]


Who is this workshop suitable for? 

This meeting is for young people with alopecia aged 13-17. This meeting is only open to those in the UK.


Who will host the workshop?

The meeting will be hosted by Emily. Emily is a writer and performer. Having had alopecia since the age of 21, her writing aims to champion those living with physical and visible differences. Her  solo show, based on her own experience of hair loss, is currently in development and will be shown at a London theatre later in the year. Alongside playwriting and performing, she has also been working in the Production departments in TV and Film, including shows such as 'Star Wars', 'Gladiator 2', and 'Hijack'. Emily will also provide time for some Q&A about her experiences both with alopecia and her professional career in playwriting & performing and TV and Film Production. 

Alopecia UK staff member Jen Davies will also be in attendance to support.
