This group is for people interested in writing character-driven screenplays with strong narrative values. A screenplay isn't a novel, and it's not a film. It's a tool to get a critical mass of professionals together to make a film. The stronger the story and the more human the characters, the better the screenplay. Classic narrative structure will be encouraged as a respectful basis for script critique, as will analysis of classic and current films and scripts for technique. All genres welcome!

We currently have two different kinds of meetings:

The Feedback and Story Analysis is where we discuss our own stories and screenplays every other Tuesday. This meeting is currently at the Ascension Coffee. Since this happens every two weeks, the meeting will happen on different Tuesdays of the month throughout the year.

We also discuss classic screenplays once a month in our Classic Screenplay Breakdown meeting. These meetings are also currently at the Ascension Coffee House. We have worked on Casablanca, On The Waterfront, The GodfatherPlanes, Trains & Automobiles, Citizen Kane, Saving Mr Banks, Groundhog Day, and Chinatown in the past. Come join us!
