Lee Thompson wins Met Film School screenwriting contest


Awarded a free place on their Write A Feature Film course, he will develop his winning pitch into a feature script over a six month period.

Having been working on television drama ideas recently, Lee is looking forward to writing his first feature screenplay. PRODIGAL will tell the story of a working-class family who face an uncertain future when their son is pronounced a musical prodigy.

The Met Film School is based at Ealing Studios and offers a wide-range of short courses, one and two year programmes, and an MA in filmmaking. Write A Feature Film is a part-time course specifically designed to help writers create a script that has a genuine chance of being picked up for further development.
