Screenplay Incubator - Develop Something New with Kimberly Montini

Director of Development, Cranium Entertainment
Sundays on Feb 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th @ 11am - 1pm PT

Sold Out - Waitlist Available

This 4 week Incubator will match you with an exec that is currently looking for a specific type of script. You will write that script under their guidance and they can have the first look of the finished project to potentially continue working on it with you. If not, you still walk away with a new script for your portfolio!

This month's exec is Kimberly Montini from Cranium Entertainment who is looking for holiday movies for Hallmark and Lifetime (nothing set in New York).

Kimberly has picked up two of our writers' scripts!

This Class Will Cover:

  • Story structure
  • Keeping conflict interesting and escalating
  • Crafting satisfying character arcs
  • And more! 

Class Structure:

Week #1 - Writers will submit concept, logline, character breakdowns, and outline prior to the first week's class for this exec to review. Your exec will give verbal feedback this week.
