SATURDAYS, JAN 7 & 14, 10 AM-5 PM
Instructor: Holly Brix
Would you build a house without a blueprint or buy one that was constructed without a master plan? Okay, so don’t try to write your screenplay without one. Every genre—comedy, action, thriller, drama, even the indie short film—draws on the same general structural elements and key moments to propel the story forward. Discover what they are, find out how they provide a blueprint for all stages of the screenwriting process, and learn to use them to help your script take shape and elevate the quality of your work. Whether you’ve got a great idea that needs to be fleshed out or a script that’s sagging with second act woes, understanding and implementing structure is the key to taking your story idea to the next level. Quit worrying about dialogue and stop trying to reinvent the wheel. Come prepared to give your unruly ideas and creative impulses the blueprint they need to come to life. All levels of experience are welcome.
