Script Bootcamp: Week 1
In this eight-week online course, you’ll go from a blank page to the first draft of a complete feature screenplay. You’ll attend one three-hour class session each week, in which we’ll walk through the entire process of conceiving, outlining, and writing a 80-120 page script. Conor will make plenty of time to take questions from students, as well as to review your work and offer feedback. This is an intensive crash-course for all skill levels, intended to keep students motivated and on track as they make their story come to life.
Week 1: Why this story?
Now that you’ve narrowed down your high-concept idea, we will ask the simple questions: why this story? Why now? What is both timely and universal in your idea? We will begin to chisel away at the central dramatic question of your script, and design a plan to explore this theme from all angles. You’ll refine and polish your story’s premise, and begin the process of outlining.
