This workshop will inspire Actors from all over the world to take control of their own work through exploring the craft of visual storytelling taught by seasoned movie studio executive & screenwriter Steven Douglas-Craig.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Actors/Writers will be guided through developing and writing a short film screenplay using big beat outlining & character development processes polished into a production-ready 6-8 page (minute)  final draft in just 8 weeks!

This course is designed to develop basic screenwriting abilities for actors by focusing on narrative short form, and in particular, character-driven pieces. Analyzing successful short films (& screenplays) while writing their own, Actor/Writers will focus on structure, character development, the role of conflict, strategies for writing effective dialogue and the importance of setting. 

Believing in the effectiveness of reading, watching, and writing, this course uses lectures, short form visual analysis, reading/analyzing scripts, writing exercises and workshopping of participants' work with the goal of developing your unique voice for the screen.​

NOTE: Please come to 1st class with TWO short form concepts to pitch. Pitches should give clear, concise, two or three-sentence answer to Who's your protagonist? Where's story set? What's antagonistic force? What is central crisis?
