Screenwriting is one of the most demanding areas of film making you will ever do, so it's always a pleasure to have a source to accompany you on your way through the wild. The Big Spaceship's Victor Pineiro offers a crashworthy course on how to create a script in an easy-to-understand slide show that covers everything from the hero's design to the division of the different measuring devices (beats, scenarios, strings, acts, etc.).

There really is no right or incorrect way to start writing a script, but there are certainly ways to make the whole thing a little simpler when you're just getting started. When you' re looking for a default, there are many who vow different script writers and scripturus, like Joseph Campbell's Monomyth (The Hero's Journey), Robert McKee's Aristotlelian conceptions, and Blake Snyder's storyline points, but one of the best-known is the Three Act Structure, a model supported by one of the great Guru of our times, Syd Field.

It' not the be-all and end-all in screenwriting, but if you're looking for something to help you get through the complexities, at least for the first round, it'll most likely help you. Like the great Pablo Picasso said, "Learn the laws like a professional so you can learn to make them fall like an artist."

There is a new supplement to the Shore Scripts price table for the victorious screenplay in our contest (yes, sorry, but I also have to advertise the screenplay. www.shorescripts.com !!!!!!) is a free place on the Screenwriting Foundation course at the London Film Academy next year.

Now that I've just seen a very interesting story on The Bitter Script Reader's blogs where someone asks: "Is screenwriting a skills you can learn?" {\a6} (thebitterscriptreader.blogspot.co.uk/201.....), it made me think about what the value of script classes really is and what really is the best way to learn the trade?

On a personal level, I graduated from Screen Academy Scotland Screenwriting MA, which was quite good, but not for the reasons you would have expected. There was not much more than what I had already learnt from the course materials when it came to the real art of composition, but instead I found the network with other authors, productions and filmmakers of inestimable value.

Have you had similar experience or can you learn from it?
