RMFW Screenwriting 101 - Class offered by Trai Cartwright

  • Mar 4, 2014 · 6:00 PM

RMFW Screenwriting 101 - by Trai Cartwirght


Tuesdays, 6PM - 9PM | March 4 - April 22

RMFW  @ 2369 S. Trenton Way, Ste. M, Denver, CO  80231

Cost:  $225 RMFW Members / $250 Non-Members


While this class is new to RMFW, I've been teaching it for about 5 years across the Front Range, including at the Colorado Film School. I'm a Hollywood filmmaking veteran, so all the skills and techniques are up-to-the-minute and real world. You don't have to live in LA to get started as a screenwriter, and I'll give you plenty of tricks for how to make that happen!


We're waiting for the webmaster to upload the class on the RMFW site, but in the meantime, you can just tell me you'd like to reserve a space, I'll hold it for you. I'll send the registration link out when it's live.


The Class

Whether you’re already acquainted with screenwriting or brand new to the medium, here's an opportunity to join a Hollywood Development Executive for a dynamic, comprehensive workshop that will give you all the basics you need to write a script.

In this 8-week, 3-hour class, half the time will be devoted to discussing real world, Hollywood-ready formatting techniques as well as some of the more fluid elements, like narrative, dialogue, theme, character, and structure arcs. The other half of each session will be about workshopping student scripts. Each writer will have the opportunity to complete half a feature length film under instructor guidance, and workshop 16 pages of it in class.

Future RMFW Classes:

Writing for TV - May 13 - July 1
Advanced Screenwriting - July 13 - August 31
