4 Week workshop for Screenwriters, TV writers, & Web series creators
First, middle, or final drafts.
Learn how to turn any pages - into great ones. Cliche transforms into familiar but different, expository morphs into extraordinary, confusing into profound, and average into extraordinary.
Discover how to shape-shift for the creation of a magnificent screenplay.
In this workshop, we focus on you. Your mind, Your story, Your goals. We approach the art and craft of screenwriting with a holistic approach, utilizing research in evolutionary biology, neuroscience, and psychology, combined with the current (and future state of) the film industry.
By focusing on the way you approach the page, you will build a set of tools that will apply to every script you ever write.
We deep dive into your understanding of character, action, structure, theme, dialogue, subtext and most importantly - story.
Every week you will discover and practice new tools for building story and structure through character, theme, and intuition.
Workshop 8 - 15 pages at least once and get a clear plan of how to move forward in the most effective way possible!
