Writing the Action Pilot

Webinars ~ Craft Series
Hosted By:
Anna Musky-Goldwyn - Screenwriter, Formerly on SUPERGIRL

Car chases! Explosions! Hand to hand combat! 

We love a good action sequence at Roadmap, but learning how to write one that's appropriate for your story is no easy feat. There's the possibility of overwriting, trying to control the pace of the read, and servicing your story and characters so your action sequences aren't all splash and flash. And that's before you get to all the things you need your pilot to accomplish to set up a series that can go for years. 

If you have an action pilot you're working on, join us for this webinar to get the info you need to make your pilot stand out! 

This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover: 

  • Pilot structure 
  • Action subgenres 
  • Characterization
  • Setting up the world 
  • Dos and Don'ts for writing an action sequence
