Story 2 Script 2 Screen is a collaborative project in the Creative Writing Masters Programme at the University of Glasgow.

The project aims to take 3-4 short stories and convert them in to scripts and then into short films to be shown at a screening later in the year.

We also intend to take these film’s as part of a show exploring the creative process behind the project to both the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and The Glasgow Film Festival.

We now have sufficient short stories and have since converted these to scripts.

Whilst some directors have already been approached anyone interested in directing these short films should email story2script2screen@gmail.com

We are currently seeking actors for these shorts. Applications can be made via email or by simply signing up for an audition slot in the events section of this group. Initial auditions will be held on Tuesday the 25th of January 2011.
