The Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF) and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) are running comedy scriptwriting workshops pitched at Year 5 and 6 students, each series of three workshops is supported by Department of Education and Training.
Conducted via Zoom video conference software, ACMI education staff will introduce students to the sketch comedy genre and walk them through the scriptwriting process. Students will collaborate with others 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:
- Series 1 – June 6, 13 and 20
- Series 2 – August 1, 8 and 15
