“WANT TO THINK LIKE A SCREENWRITER?” – Free Screenwriting Class

January 27 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

If the answer is “yes,” then take this FREE class and “train your brain” to think the way a writer of screenplays thinks.

A writer has numerous things to think about simultaneously: “framing,” the introduction of characters, character names, subplots, plot points, transitions, dialogue threads, sluglines, memorable lines (“You’re gonna need a bigger boat,” “Go ahead. Make my day,” “Gambling in Casablanca? I’m shocked.”), set-ups, and “gags.” Depending on the story, a good writer must also be able to advance multiple stories taking place in multiple locations.
The writer then has to put those items—and more—into a story that starts “fast” and ends “big” and fits nicely and tightly into 110 to 120 pages of proper screenplay format. And all subplots must be wrapped and accounted for.

By attending this class, you will receive the “How to Think Like a Screenwriter” document. This detailed document has incredible value for a person truly interested in the craft. This thought process, plus reading at least 20 screenplays, having an appreciation for movies, and “living a life” to have something to write about is a great start to writing a screenplay.
In addition to the document, attendance entitles you to a 20% discount on “Fade In” screenwriting software, and a discount on the balance of the Write Your Script class. Seating is limited. It’s free. So register today.
