Ever read a script, and knew something was missing, but didn't know exactly how to fix it?

Have an idea in your head that you know would make a great film?

The Screenwriting Masterclass is for you!

Weather you are a filmmaker, actor, writer or creative person with an idea for a script you want to get off the ground the Screenwriting Masterclass will give you a battle tested framework professionals use to quickly and consistently produce high quality stories and scripts for any format.

  • Craft Compelling story structures.

  • Develop three dimensional characters with rich arcs.

  • Interpret and apply feedback to improve your script.

Writing is not a spectator sport.

Over the course of the weekend, you'll LEARN and APPLY a simple and effective framework to create an original production ready short format screenplay.

You'll walk away with:

  • A work-shopped production ready "Calling Card" short film script.
