You’ve written your script, but now what?
Even the best writers receive feedback from studios and networks, so it’s beneficial to avoid common screenwriting traps ahead of time and know how to get to a greenlight. In this course, studio and production company veteran Brandon Loureiro breaks down the problems he sees in screenplays again and again, as well as how to solve them.
In addition, Brandon also identifies some of the common phrases used by executives, along with what they really mean. Understanding the most frequent story issues is only half the battle though, as coming to a solution can be equally difficult. With this in mind, the final portion of the class will include helpful tips on addressing notes and solving problems.
This Four Week Series Will Cover:
- Industry jargon
- What studios look for in scripts
- Working with executives
- Taking notes like a pro
- Live Q&A
