Horror + Thriller Bootcamp: Week 2 (Paid Class)
Join pro screenwriter Conor Kyle for a four-week intensive crash course on how to write his favorite genres: horror and thrillers! We will dive into plot archetypes, worldbuilding, monster design and thriller premises. Bring your horror or thriller ideas and loglines! We will workshop your concepts during the bootcamp, as you develop your own scare sequences, suspenseful scenes and mind-blowing twists.
By the end of the bootcamp, you’ll have a detailed outline, and you’ll be ready to begin writing your horror/thriller feature screenplay or TV pilot.
