Scenes That Sell Movies with Screenwriter
William C. Martell
An Online Event Brought
to You by Final Draft, Inc.


Transforming standard scenes into exciting, interesting scenes


All about scenes -- from how many to transitions and story flow.

Great screenplays are composed of great scenes. Scenes that audiences remember long after the house lights have come up. Who can forget Cary Grant being chased through the cornfield by the crop duster? Or Gene Kelly singing in the rain? Or Indiana Jones facing that massive swordsman in the marketplace ... then shooting him? But how do you write those great scenes? How do you create those magical moments?

This class shows you 10 ways to create new scenes, improve the scenes you have, create magical movie moments, and teaches you how to use transitions to link your scenes and create smooth "story flow."

Topics include:

* How many scenes are too many? Too few?
* Ten ways to create new, exciting, memorable scenes.
* DNA - how scenes reflect the whole story.
* Beats within a scene.
* Transitions, Match Cuts, Buttons.


Register now and make your scenes unforgettable!

About William C. Martell:

William C. Martell has written 19 films for cable networks like HBO, Showtime, and USA and has been on international film festival juries, including Raindance in London four times with Mike Figgis, Saffron Burrows, Lennie James, and Edgar Wright. Roger Ebert discussed him with Gene Siskel on their 1997 "If We Picked The Winners" Oscar(r) show. He's quoted in Bordwell's book "The Way Hollywood Tells It." His USA Network flick "Hard Evindence" was released on video the same day as Julia Roberts' film "Something To Talk About" and out-rented it in the USA.
