Help Brendan Attend a Script Editing for TV Course

I'm raising money to go to London and do a 4 day (2 weekends) course in Script Editing for Television  given by Yvonne Grace  . Yvonne is an award winning TV drama producer of Eastenders, Holby City and Crossroads .

Yvonne told me "The industry needs skilled, emotionally intelligent script editors and you would be a good one".

I need help to pay for the £475 course fee, travel, accommodation and subsistence whilst I'm down in London which is a very expensive city.

About Me

I'm a late emerging Birmingham, UK based filmmaker and screenwriter. Since becoming a filmmaker I've won awards or placed well in competitions for directing, producing and screenwriting.

I've also been selected for 2 regional, 3 national and 2 international talent schemes.

Around Again  - a film I story-lined and produced won the UK parliamentary Film the House award in 2015.


Another film I made called Fled  won the Sci-Cine Super Short award. I wrote, produced and directed - assembling an international volunteer cast and crew of 37.

Despite all the awards and talent schemes I've struggled to break into the industry. I believe I have the generic skills to  be a good script editor as I have developed my own scripts and helped others develop theirs. A script I wrote came second in a recent UK national competition.

The organiser said "Really appreciate you entering and the conversations some of the judges had around your script were amazing to hear. I think out of all of them, your story was the one that had everyone the most excited about and was a very, very close second."

The judges were from the BBC and Creative England amongst others. 

I believe doing this course will help me get into TV at what is a boom time for Script Editors and Development Executives with the right experience and knowledge.

Any surplus funds raised will be used towards making my next short film.
