In June Linnaeus Estate hosted fifteen regional NSW writers who attended a TV script writing workshop. The Writing for TV Intensive, presented by Screenworks, was facilitated by Alexa Wyatt - script writer, script editor and script producer (Janet King, Home and Away, McLeods Daughters).
Later in the month Cate Shortland visited Linnaeus and Byron Bay to present her most recent film Berlin Syndrome. Following the screening Cate talked with Australian Director’s Guild CEO Kingston Anderson about the making of her film and answered questions from the audience.
Over the following two days (22-23 July 2017), twelve regional directors were selected to participate in a Directing Masterclass at Linnaeus. They enjoyed the rare opportunity to connect with and receive advice from two prominent Australian screen directors (Cate Shortland & Tony Krawitz) and the CEO of the Australian Directors Guild (Kingston Anderson).
These events were delivered by Screenworks in partnership with the Linnaeus Estate Education Fund, Australian Directors Guild and Screen NSW.
