Conception to Delivery - Our Signature Program
Our signature package.
For those who have taken 'Baby Steps' or who are already familiar with the content of that program.
These seven classes lead you through the process of breaking a viable movie or TV concept, learning how to structure it using our Sequence Tension method and writing a tight first draft. Class one introduces you to the current film and TV market and establishes your personal goals for your script. Do you hope to sell it as a spec? Do you aim to secure independent financing to produce it yourself? Are you aiming to secure representation and go up for assignments? With this in mind, we lock the idea you'll work on. You will be taught how to write a script outline using sequences for your idea. After this you will work on your outline at home.
During class two we identify the core hook of the project and determine the correct format for it. Should this TV pilot actually be a contained feature? We then start to break the idea down using The Sequence Tension Method, which will be used to structure your new draft.
In class three we analyze a pre-assigned movie or TV show in the appropriate genre using The Sequence Tension Method and apply the concepts to your movie. You will be taught how to write a new outline for your idea.
In class four we will analyze and lock your outline and commence work on Act One of your screenplay.
Class five yields notes on your first act and we restructure your outline in accordance with the script's progress.
In class six you will undertake the same process on the second act.
In class seven you will undertake the same process on the third act and be given suggestions for overall structural changes.
Micro script line notes will be given and we will discuss your next steps on the project and any rewrite goals.
