  • Rocking Your First 10 Pages

    Needs a location

    Ask a producer or agent how long into a screenplay before they know if the writer is a strong one, and they’ll tell you they can tell from the very first page. Ask them how many pages they’ll give a weak script before they give up on it? Ten pages. As a writer you only have 10 pages to impress your buyers, and as a storyteller, those 10 pages are crucial for cementing a stellar overall script. In this workshop, we’ll look at some successful screenplay first acts, discuss the essential components, and have a look at some of your samples. So bring along your first act and get ready to see how to supercharge your script! FREE CLASS

  • What Producers Do -- And How The Writer Can Help Them

    Link visible for attendees

    What do Producers even do?? Strangely enough, most writers don’t understand what this most essential job entails – and how they can better partner with their new boss (or even consider producing themselves!). This relationship starts on the page – your script has to be “produceable.” Understanding what producers are looking for at every budget level helps you deliver a script that can sell – and get to the screen.

  • Writing Action Scenes

    Link visible for attendees

    There’s more to writing an action scene than just typing “The most insane car chase ever ensues!” How do you account for pacing in a lightning-quick scene? How do you give character insight even as they are swinging machetes? How do you make the best use of your environment? How do you write something that doesn’t blow the budget so mightily that it stops your script from selling? We’ll look at some of the most successful action scenes of all time and learn from the best.
