    Telling Personal Stories for Screen: Essex Writers House

    June 18, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


    Book a ticket here through Essex Film Collective!

    £5 for non-members of Essex Film Collective

    Everyone has a story to tell. Come and explore how you can shape your personal stories for screen. 

    Essex Film Collective is collaborating with George Morgan of Essex Visual Arts to bring you a dynamic workshop on on dramatising personal stories for the screen. 

    George will lead writing exercises and use case studies, including his own animated short film ‘The red ball’ to facilitate how stories can heal and how the process can lend itself to healing for the artist. 

    No prior knowledge needed, just a willingness to be open.

    About George Morgan, founder of Essex Visual Arts
    George Morgan is an Essex based video artist and writer-producer who has been commissioned by RADA, BBC Arts, Screensouth and Arts Council England. George was recently selected for the BFI NETWORK South East producers programme in addition to being invited as one of seven writers to take part in the Mercury Theatre playwright programme, led by Kenny Emson. 

    George gravitates towards stories that unapologetically explore the intersectionality of the Black British experience through historical and contemporary narratives. The growing exploration of his ancestral roots uncover an influx of hidden stories, people and places that will inevitably bring previous empires and current institutions into a dramatic form with an investigative exploration at the heart of it.
