If your structure is broken, all the witty dialogue and killer visuals in the world can’t save your script.
There are essential structural elements that underline every story, movie, TV episode, etc. Pulling back the curtain on what those are, how they function in a narrative and what goes wrong when they’re missing can help you diagnose where your script is stuck. Whether you’re ready to start a new idea, or stumped with how to execute notes on a current draft, this two-session workshop can help you unlock the keys to knocking your next draft out of the park.
In the first session, we’ll look at these points with examples and explanations.
In the second session, we’ll workshop the points you’ve identified in your script and set you on the road to a successful next draft.
