  • I need some advice for my honours project!

    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to the forum and I'm really looking for a little advice.

    I'm due to start on my Honours project in the coming week and I've been given quite a variety
    of choices to work on; a short film, a feature-length script or a dissertation.

    I seem to be the only person who appears interest in a dissertation but I believe it's something
    I'd really enjoy. I'm hoping to continue onto a MA in Screenwriting but we are already submitting
    a feature-length script for a different module so I can't see the benefit of doing two at once.

    It boils down to, is a dissertation going to be worth it?

    I appreciate any help!

    Welcome to the forum!

    My gut feeling is that if you want to go to grad school for screenwriting, you'd be better off writing a screenplay that could be used as part of your application. A dissertation seems to me to be the better choice if you're aiming toward grad school in film studies.

      agree with [at]mara, but also why do you want to go to grad school for screen writing?
      best,
