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?

This class on screenplay writing is a fast-paced tutorial that does just that.

What we will cover?

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!
