So you have this great idea for a short, a feature or even a TV show, but you just don’t know how to get going? Well, this workshop is for you. I’m a writer, editor and director with over 25 years of experience in filmmaking. Aside from covering more practical aspects, such as how to format a screenplay, we’ll explore how to develop an overall arc for your story and your characters, how best to set up convincing antagonisms, surprising, yet relatable, plot turns, engaging stakes and last, but certainly not least, how to write a marketable pitch.
5 sessions of 2 hours. The registration fee covers all 5 sessions.
