How The Pros Rewrite 

Professional writers know how to rewrite while most amateurs do not. Too many writers rewrite their scripts over and over without really improving it.

Over the past 10 years, Corey Mandell has been fortunate enough to work closely with some of the smartest and most successful directors, producers and writers in the business. He has seen first hand how they evaluate and revise stories. Strikingly, almost none of them uses the approaches taught in popular screenwriting books and seminars.

In fact, their methods often fly directly in the face of conventional wisdom.

This seminar will explore the tools and techniques used by many of the most successful people in the industry to evaluate and rewrite screenplays. These are the exact same tools Corey teaches in his UCLA screenwriting classes.

Topics include:

  • Diagnosing and testing the story that plays in other people’s heads
  • Identifying and fixing foundational problems as opposed to chasing symptoms
  • Using strategic rewrite memos
  • Creating narrative cohesion and correcting structural weaknesses without destroying the originality of the story and characters
  • and so much more!

As an aspiring screenwriter, you've asked these questions on message boards, at conferences, and to consultants. But now is your chance to ask a working screenwriter and UCLA professor what you need to know about rewriting your script like a pro.

Don't miss this opportunity to find out what Corey Mandell has learned about the craft of screenwriting, and how you can use his knowledge to make your script even better.

Register now to ensure your spot at the live webinar event for only $29. You will receive an email with instructions on attending this event.

There will also be a live question-and-answer session during the last 15 to 20 minutes of the webinar where all attendees can chat questions to Corey live. These questions will be chosen at random. You may also submit questions in advance to attention Corey Mandell Questions. These submissions will be considered for the Q&A as well.

If you miss the scheduled time, you will receive an email the morning after the event has closed with a link to watch the video at your convenience.

Register now and spend some quality time with Corey Mandell, courtesy of the leading software for screenwriters in the business, Final Draft.
