Unleash your creativity and learn the powerful tools needed to write for stage, tv, and film in this eight-hour workshop lead by, Kacie Devaney. You will learn the process of writing, which you can apply to any script you craft. The day will include writing warm-ups and prompts to get the creative juices flowing. These exercises will teach you how to warm up your writing instrument, create in the moment, and harness the spontaneity that leads to compelling plots. The workshop will allow and encourage time for group brainstorming and revising in order to learn and practice all facets of the writing process.
Students will be encouraged to read their work out loud for feedback and further development. While most of the workshop is practical, teaching you how to; strengthen your writing skills, think outside of the box, and develop a story that sells; you will also learn the industry standards of writing for the stage and film. Handouts detailing proper formatting will be provided as well as platform suggestions you can use for writing for in all three media.
By the end of this course, you will take away with you a solid start to your play, pilot or film. You will gain invaluable feedback from Kacie and build confidence in your abilities as a writer.
