8 x 8: Advanced Screenwriting
WHEN: Thursdays 6:00 – 8:30 pm, June 1 – July 20
WHERE: On Zoom
In this class you’ll get in-depth instruction on something I feel very passionate about – closing the gap between the screenplay and the finished film.
As screenwriters you will learn to employ the skills of other filmmaking disciplines in order to bring more immediacy to your pages. You’ll write like a director directs, a DP shoots, an editor edits. The goal is to create a more complete cinematic experience so that when readers finish your script they will feel they have not read a screenplay but have “seen” the movie or series pilot.
Visually-driven. Immersive. Visceral. These are terms you will hear a lot – along with my continued proselytizing about character revelation, the power of POV, and sequences.
And, of course, you’ll also get my notes and feedback on your work each week.
This is not a beginning screenwriting class. You will get the most out of it if you come armed with a script idea you’re ready to write or planning to rewrite an existing draft.
Enrollment is limited to 8 writers and sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Payment can be made via PayPal or Venmo.
