The devil is in the details, and never is that more true than in the movies. The single most important building block to a successful screenplay is a scene, so in this workshop we will explore how to write a great one.

We will discuss how to give each scene a strong arc, making sure that it pushes the overall story forward, while revealing character through action and dialogues. We will discuss how to deal with exposition, character descriptions, action, formatting and finally how to write believable and entertaining dialogues. Participants will workshop scenes from their projects, learning what makes a scene great and what to do to make it even better The workshop runs for 4 weeks, two hours per session.
