Karmic Courage Productions to host intensive, hands-on workshops this fall-spring.
First up will be a SCREENWRTING INTENSIVE. It will be a 8 week class where students will receive one-to-one interaction on how to have your script pass a Hollywood Reader. The class will cover:
- What a script should look like
- The elements of a screenplay (i.e. what goes where)
- Screenwriting software demos
- Character arc workshops
- Discussions and dissections of how theme intertwines a screenplay
- Exciting central conflicts that keep the reader reading
- Subplots that keep the action moving forward
- Interesting setting exercises
- Point of view discussions
- How to set the right tone
- Dialogue workshop where professional actors will read your dialogue to see if it rings true
- What does and doesn’t belong in Act 1, 2, and 3
There will be viewing assignments, homework, in class exercises, demonstrations and comparisons to existing films. At the end of this class you’ll have the tools to complete a screenplay to show to agents, producers, or even direct yourself.
All experience levels are welcome. Workshop with a work-in-progress, completed script, or just an idea. Novelist, playwright and short story writers may also be interested but please know that we are tailoring this workshop to screenplay structure.
Your instructors will be, multi-award-winning writer/producer, Kate Chaplin and Hollywood insider Veronica Diaz. Read more about us on the “About us” page of www.karmiccourage.com
