If you want to hone your reading and writing skills in a setting that lets you work at your own pace, then Roadmap has a new program to fit that bill!
Karel Segers' amazing Script Shack Program is a self-directed study program that only takes 30 minutes a day! Work at your own pace through this proven program and join your peers on the scheduled Zoom meetings (click the "Schedule" tab above) to check in with Karel and share what you've learned.
Over the course of the 8 weeks, you will study excerpts from a variety of scripts, taking you out of your comfort zone by exposing you to a wide selection of writing styles, formats, and genres. You will also read a Blacklist feature script as well as a popular pilot, dissect what makes them "work", and write a synopsis for each.
This Program Will Teach You How To:
- Learn to intuitively understand what a great script looks like.
- Develop the muscle memory of writing in screenplay format.
- Acquire the talent to translate ideas into the written word.
- Develop the analytical skills to edit and improve your work.
- Construct clearer one-page synopses.

After a break from writing, this was the perfect course to recondition my screenwriting muscles! My approach to writing, reading, and watching has vastly improved in a very short time. And the course was a lot of fun!

I wouldn’t have realized I was rushing through scenes and being a lazy writer had it not been for SCRIPT COMPASS. I’m so grateful to Karel Segers for offering his SCRIPT COMPASS course. I would highly recommend it to all writers who want to elevate their craft to a professional level.

Script Compass opened my eyes to new ways of writing and made me flex my writing muscles with rigor and practice. I found better ways to put images and dialogue to the page.
