Screenwriting Part Two2019-09-23T16:10:03+00:00

In Screenwriting I we got into the thick of how to build a story: turns, sequences, getting your protagonist into the woods and getting your protagonist back out.

In Screenwriting II we’ll dig deep into the most exciting building block of any script: the scene. What common pitfalls make a scene weak? What makes a scene compelling and great? What should a scene accomplish? How can we use it to catapult our stories forward?

With this foundation from week one in place, during weeks two and three we’ll workshop your writing—a short or a few consecutive scenes from a feature—so you leave with real-life practical insights for your own project and your writing going forward!

3 week workshop. Limited to 6 writers. Ages 18+. $50 discount for Artist Foundry members. (Membership is only $100 / year, visit our membership page for more information.)

Sept 26 – Oct 10 – Thursday Nights – 7pm – 10pm

$150 // $100 for Artist Foundry Members (Members: contact Artist Foundry directly to register)

“Build Your Story” reviews:

“It completely changed how I watch movies, read screenplays, and write. Good stuff.”

“I will never write an outline again without incorporating some of the tools and exercises that Joseph teaches in this workshop.”

“It was a very comfortable environment that was both instructional, while also being loose enough to encourage comments and questions.”
