Have an idea for a movie but don’t know where to begin? Want to learn how to write an original TV pilot? Need a general screenwriting overview? Join instructor Caitlin Durante (The Bechdel Cast) for a crash course in writing for the screen. This workshop will cover crafting a story, characterization, structure, theme, dialogue, format, and other script mechanics, as well as what to do with a finished script -- for both film and television! At the end of the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to pitch a movie or series idea and receive feedback.
