Making a Good Script Great

Screenwriting is an art, which comes from within but can be encouraged and shaped, a craft, which can be learned, and creativity, which includes understanding your own personal process and making it work for you. This workshop will discuss all three, while focusing in elements of the craft.

Topics covered:
  • The Creative Process or Making Friends with the Muse
  • Structuring and Shaping your Story - using the three-act structure, focusing the story, 
  • "Making a Scene" which would include structuring scenes and types of scenes...exposition scenes, establishing scenes, magoc and wonder scenes, confrontation scenes, etc. 
  • Expressing the Theme. Includes choosing, clarifying, and integrating the theme while "showing, not telling"
  • Creating Cinematic Images. Using images as metaphors. Making your film more visual.
  • Creating Unforgettable characters: Researching Characters. Giving Direction to the character. Creating Conflict.
  • Dimensionalizing the Characters
  • Creating the Transformational Arc
  • Dialogue and subtext
Each topic comes with a Q&A session.
