Danny Wright, former stage, television and film actor, now screenwriter  promotes and teaches the Classic American Narrative Structure to screenwriting, or C.A.N.S.  Danny wrote the synopsis and treatment for the movie, "Drumline".  He served as VP of the Tennessee Screenwriters Association and taught screenwriting at the IBFFN(International Black Film Festival of Nashville).  While in Nashville, Danny learned the Classic American Narrative  Structure to screenwriting.   Three acts, with the antagonist and protagonist having goals that are diametrically opposite, both with EIGHT critical decisions throughout the script to satisfy both their WANT and NEEDS to achieve their character arc. Weekly at our meetups, three writers will bring in a synopsis, treatment , ideas or the first 15 pages of their screenplay. The group will cast out your pages and read them out loud. The writer will listen to his pages being read. Afterwards, the writer will take questions from the group on what makes the script work and what does not. this will be done with no overwriting. The following week, the writer can correct his/her pages and either sign up to have them reread at the following meetup or they can bring pages 16-30. Again, they will listen while the group reads their scipt pages. On the last meetup of the month, we will have seminars on writing successful loglines, treatments, pitching your scripts, getting an agent, and writing synopsis.
