Class Online (Taped live)
This summer, I live-streamed five one-hour classes.
Here they are recorded and unedited!
After you sign up, I'll e-mail you with instructions about how to view them, and PDF handouts for each class.
Got a new idea or want to rewrite an old one? Build from premise, find the structure and form that works for you and learn writing tools that will help you outline in a day.
Writing Fresh Scenes and Original Setpieces
You’ve found the structure. Now work on the scenes! This class helps you create great scenes and set-pieces that are entertaining and original.
Your characters need to get out and play a little. They aren't all the same and there's no reason they should have to play by the same old rules.
Learn quick and effective writing techniques to revive bland exchanges, tune up character voices and bring more life to the page.
Word choice, subtext, story. What makes a page a great read? In this class, the focus is on writing style, tone and technique. Through written examples, we take a hard look at word choice, scene direction and the nuances of the page.
All five classes: $150.00
November 2 – December 14 (skipping November 30)
Saturdays 12:30 - 3:30
You know your script has to be rewritten.
You know it has to be original, active, polished and poignant
before it goes into industry hands.
But, where do you start?
week 1: The Story/Structure Pass
week 2: The Activity Pass
week 3: The Character Pass
week 4: The Tone/Format Pass
week 5: The Dialogue Pass
week 6: The Clean-Up
In this class, lectures, film examples and in-class writing tools show you what your script needs and helps you to fix it on the spot!
You'll "script doctor" in class, hone pages, deepen your characters and breathe new life into dialogue. At the end of the 6 weeks, you'll leave with a script that's restructured, reworked and ready for the industry.
"The Rewrite" is open to feature film and TV writers.
A completed first draft is not required to take this class. This is an advanced screenwriting class that will help you at any stage in your process.
E-WORKBOOK: All students who sign up for the live 6 week classes receive a free e-workbook via e-mail each week.
