One-Day Screenwriting Intensive with C.C. Webster (via Zoom)

March 2 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm


What makes the difference between films that are phenomenal successes and those that vanish without a trace? The answer lies in the script–the unique combination of artistic vision, exceptional story structure, and original theme. This one-day intensive taught by seasoned screenwriter and instructor C.C. Webster will present the critical skills and knowledge to make your scripts stand out.

Topics include:

  • Transforming a rough idea into a story map, that will lead you to the page
  • Formatting a screenplay and using dynamic, specific industry specific language
  • Crafting an engaging and strategically paced narrative structure
  • Creating compelling characters, settings, and scenes

Brief curated lectures will lead to writing exercises that will allow you to use the tools shared in real time, so you can take the tools with you and use them on any future endeavors.

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom. Scholarships are due Dec 15 at midnight PST. Please read all course policies before registering for any of our classes.
