Description

Join over 30,000 students learning from our courses!

Too many writers think that a scene is just two people talking or arguing. Or they use the scene as an opportunity to advance the plot, reveal character, or simply make an impact through set-pieces. While there’s some validity to that, most amateur scenes tend to fall flat and disengage the reader, who ultimately tosses the script in the recycling bin. Writing great scenes requires talent, skill, know-how and practice. While the first two can’t be taught, you can learn what makes a great scene, recognize when a scene doesn’t work and why, and apply practical techniques as you craft dramatic scenes and receive feedback from the instructor.

If you want to elevate your scripts and stories – AND your screenwriting or filmmaking career -- to the highest possible level, this class is a must.

They DON'T teach you this in Film School!
