Through the course of this yearlong program, we take you from an initial concept to a completed first draft. We then help you polish the first 15 pages of your full-length film. We focus on helping you achieve artistic excellence while honing your craft skills. You are taught the importance of industry script notes and learn to receive and provide constructive feedback that supports and expands, rather than inhibits, your creative process.
During Session Three, we take the completed exercises from Sessions 1 and 2 on story, theme, character, and structure and embark on writing our first drafts. We submit 10-12 pages at a time for critique and review. As a group, we shine a light on where the writer’s creativity, craft, freshness, and innovation shines. We keep the writer on track—both story, and plot-wise—while allowing for spontaneous exploration as the “messy” first draft emerges. We believe it is imperative that screenwriters hear their words read aloud so they can truly appreciate the power of their work, and hear their characters come alive on the page.
Screenwriting is part of a highly competitive industry, and we steer you toward developing polished, professional, commercially viable projects for TV, film, and streaming services and platforms.
