Description

This is an advanced writing workshop in which students, first, learn how to evaluate an extant script for a producer or studio to option and, next, become familiar with the processes involved in restructuring and revising a screenplay in relation to market considerations (television, independent, tentpole, etc.). The aim is to enhance a previous written script by refining the story premise, characters and plot through successive revisions directed by producers (in this case, the instructor, guests from the industry and classmates). The final output will be a polished script that can be submitted to competitions, agents and producers for purchase or licensing.

Prerequisites
