Spark is open to writers with a genuine passion to develop their feature film and television scriptwriting skills. The scheme assists writers with strong ideas and a passionate desire to become a professional screenwriter to develop their ideas into treatments, and ultimately scripts.
Screen Yorkshire aims to run the Spark scheme every year. Selected participants will join the SPARK development programme of residential workshops and tutorials. At the end of the programme participants will be expected to submit a detailed treatment of their feature film idea. All treatments will be assessed by Screen Yorkshire and projects with a genuine potential will be given further support to develop further, either to a revised treatment or first draft script.
