The TV Movie is back! With the number of films on traditional platforms like Lifetime and Hallmark as well as on streaming platforms, there's no shortage of potential work for writers. But how do you actually write one of these movies? What samples do you need, what's the structure and expectations, how do you work with producers, and what can you expect once a film is released?
This Two Week Clinic Will Cover:
- Pitching and developing
- Structure and outlining
- Drafting and rewriting
- What happens when the movie gets made
- Live Q&A
David Chester left L.A. after a family tragedy and moved to Japan, where he channeled the angst of his broken home, queerness and otherness as a foreigner into dysfunctional family dramas. His screenplays BIG SISTER and TILLIE are multi-finalists, his LGBTQ short THE LESSON won two international prizes, and he has eight female-driven features streaming on Netflix, Amazon Prime and Lifetime.
