Registrations Open for Scriptwriting Workshops at ACMI

Delivered in partnership with the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, and generously supported by the Victorian Department of Education and Training, our popular virtual scriptwriting workshops are aimed at Year 5 and 6 students. 

This year we are excited to be running two series of workshops for schools Australia-wide, with each series consisting of three workshops. Conducted via Zoom video conference software, engaging ACMI education staff will introduce students to the sketch comedy genre and walk them through the scriptwriting process. Your grade will collaborate with students from around the country, and will be guided in using the Sketch-o-Matic website – a digital sketch comedy writing tool inspired by the You’re Skitting Me television series.   

The video conference sessions will be held on Tuesday afternoons from 1:30pm – 2:15pm AEST on the following dates:
