Find Your Unique Voice by Mastering Key Scenes.
Execution is everything. The success of your screenplay is not only in your premise and plot but in how the story is told. Over the course of eight two-hour classes, this programme will help you create the spine of your story through the writing of several key scenes, ie:
The Opening Scene
The Inciting Incident
The Break into Act II
A Set Piece
End of ACT II
We will start with a recap of overall structure in a screen story and how dramatic tension works on an audience. Then we will look at how to write and rewrite a scene. We will go into detail on key scene-writing skills, including:
Shaping a Scene For Maximum Impact
Replacing Dialogue With Visuals
The Magic of the Objective Correlative
What Constitutes a Twist and Why It Is So Necessary
Scenes of Preparation and Scenes of Aftermath
The Lubitsch Touch
How to Be Obvious With Your Subtleties
Communicating The Inner Life of Your Characters
Cinematic Storytelling and Your Originality
There will be feedback during class times if you want to share your work-in-progress.
