intensive one, three and five day seminars for groups of 6-10 participants
Screenwriting seminars can be offered as part of corporate retreats, in collaboration with writing clubs, local libraries and as part of the conference schedule at film festivals.
One day seminars focus on concept development and broad strokes of story structure, aiming to set up the tone, world and essential conflict of a project. Three day seminars also incorporate character development, outlining and subplots, delving into the initial draft of a story outline. Five day seminars result in the first draft of a script treatment and the first ten pages of a script.
Instructor in residence programs or longer, two-to-three month courses, resulting in a completed first daft of a tv pilot or feature, can be arranged.
