HOW WILL THIS PROGRAM CHANGE YOUR SCREENWRITING?
QUALITY comes from elevating the key components of your script.
To truly create an amazing screenplay, you need to work in a NON-LINEAR fashion — improving each major component of your script, starting with the largest (story) and moving to the smallest (words).
You’ll rebuild your script from the inside out, working on one component at a time. Our progression is:
openings and endings
With each assignment, you’ll improve important parts of your script, exchange feedback with other writers, and elevate the overall quality of your story.
The days of this TEN WEEK program are listed above. You’ll take two steps per week and spend the time between lessons elevating one part of your script. By the time the process is finished, you’ll have the best screenplay you’ve ever sent to a contest or an agent.
As you’re thinking about that, consider one simple question: What percentage of the scripts that come into contests have been through all these processes? Maybe 1%. That is why this class will give you an advantage over the vast majority of scripts submitted to the upcoming contests. It will also prepare you for the quality level that is required of professionals.
If you are dedicated to succeeding as a screenwriter, this class will make a huge difference for you.
