Screenplay: Act One

The premise, the set-up, the inciting incident and the hero’s first big decision: these are the key components of your screenplay’s first act. In this 6-week workshop, beginning and experienced writers will find their story beats, develop their characters, and draft the pages that will hook their viewers and launch their protagonist’s journey. Weekly sessions will include select readings from notable scripts, review and discussion of each other’s work, and exercises designed to build the strong Act I foundation your screenplay needs.

Whether you're in the midst of your 10th script or embarking on your very first, this workshop is here to help you realize your creative vision and achieve your screenwriting goals.
