About this Event

TV writing bootcamp: Writing your first "sizzle"

Time: Friday (7pm-9:30pm) and Saturday (10am-4pm), November 22-23

Instructor: Rosary O'Neill

Location: NOCCA, 2800 Chartres Street

In the world of television and streaming services, the sizzle is everything. A "sizzle" is a short film, up to ten minutes long, that acts like an extended trailer. It gives viewers a taste of what they can expect to see over an entire season of episodes--and it's a crucial way to get investors, producers, and fans excited about an upcoming project.

In this class, you'll learn to write a script for your own sizzle over one weekend, with award-winning writer and NYC Actors Studio playwright Dr. Rosary O'Neill. The script will take the form of a quick, deep, fantastic 10-minute play based on your own idea for a series or an episode from your life, transformed into exciting monologues and scenes. Afterward, you can submit the script to festivals and producers for production.

The focus of this class is on positivity, growth, and excellence. Come participate in the glory and the fun.

PREREQUISITES

Enrollment is limited to adults 18 and over. This course is open to beginners but also continues the path of previous courses taught by Rosary O’Neill and Barret O’Brien.

NOTE

A minimum number of students must enroll in this class for it to "make". If fewer students enroll than are necessary, the class will be cancelled and full refunds will be issued. If we have to cancel the class, we'll make every effort to notify students at least one week before the first class meeting.
