Out-take Films have confirmed that they have secured the award-winning screen-writer and director Laurence Henson to deliver a four part course on screen writing in Longford this November.

The course is open to the general public, local writers, poets and anyone who has an interest in developing their ideas or stories into a film project.

Laurence Henson, who penned the films ‘Flash the Sheepdog’ (1966), ‘The Big Catch’ (1967) and ‘The Duna Bull’ (1972), has been running screenwriting courses for a number of years, winning praise from his students. ‘Eastenders’ screenwriter Glen McCoy describes it as “Fantastic!” adding that it “really hits the mark,” while Don Mullan, co-producer of the Irish award-winning feature ‘Bloody Sunday’ says the course is “extremely helpful, beneficial and enriching.”

The course will take place in Longford County Library on November 14, 21, 28 and December 5 from 7.30 - 9.30pm. The course costs €50, which includes a copy of Laurence Henson’s accompanying notes. To book your place, please contact: 085-1191118 or info@outtakefilms.com
