Do you have an idea for a feature length screenplay, but you aren't sure how to begin? This class is a great place to start! In this introductory workshop, we will start with idea generation and then move to structure, format, and a discussion of softwares and online resources to begin your script. From there, we will study scenes, feature length plot structure, and will eventually write the first 10 pages of your feature length script.

This class is meant to be for beginners. It is a space that will be supportive and fun and get you started on the journey of writing your feature-length script.

Class Format

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
