What’s it all about?

Every one of us has a story to tell, but when it comes time to put pen to paper, or finger to keyboard, or stylus to screen… Sooner or later we all pause and ask ourselves: ‘what happens next?’

Getting from start to finish on that first draft is always the hardest. So why not get it over with quick?

What will we cover?

This class on screenplay writing is a fast-paced tutorial that does just that. In a mere 75 minutes we will establish the who, what, where, when, why, and how of your story. We will start with a log-line and build up a basic plot using proven structural devices.

From Start to Finish is suitable for all skill-levels. Fun for beginners and productive for the pros! Bring an idea or a blank slate – inspiration provided.
