Join screenwriters from around the world in this inaugural 'Writing The Feature Film' workshop taught by seasoned studio veteran & pro screenwriter Steven Douglas Craig.  Writers will be guided through the process of writing a feature length screenplay from idea to finished first script pass. We'll explore story structure, scene & sequence development, the elements of tone, relevance of theme, & creating 3D character relationships that affect.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The goal is to guide writers in the creation of a feature length screenplay over the course of 15 weeks (no mean feat!). Steve will provide an opportunity to explore advanced dramatic structure, the minutiae of scene development, tone, style, three-dimensional character & relationship development, as well as explore film genre relationships.

Together, you’ll build a screenplay blueprint using a combination of lectures, visual presentations, analytical discussion, & lots of writing! All will be designed to stimulate an understanding of screenplay development & it's place in the business of writing. We will heavily workshop work in class with the intention of developing your voice & craft as a writer. It is hoped that you will complete a feature screenplay first draft (85-110 pages) by end of sessions.

 

NOTE: Please come to first class prepared to PITCH TWO FEATURE FILM CONCEPTS. Your pitches should give a clear, concise, two or three-sentence answer to the questions “Who is your protagonist? Where is the story set? What is the antagonistic force? What is the crisis?”

WHEN
