'Write a feature film script in 10 days' is a course designed to make sure you churn out a 90-page, fictional script using final draft. Perhaps you've been working on something for years? Perhaps you've never finished your script, or maybe you don't know how to write a script at all but have wanted to try? This course is for you!
We don't delve much into character development, theme or dialogue, but we'll get a rough first draft done in just over a week.
I have been writing 90-120 minute films for 3 years now and I don't only write them for myself, but for Hollywood studios too. When I started out, I didn't think I could even complete 1 single script; but once I got the hang of the structure, terminology and most of all, when I practised, I was able to churn scripts out in 10 days or less!
Do you want to write a movie too? Use this course to help you write your drama, horror, action, sci-fi, romance, comedy or any other type of film.
What you will learn:
- How to create a compelling protagonist
- The three act structure
- The beat sheet
- How to write a logline to pitch your idea
- How to get ready to write a film script
You will also be guided through a step-by-step process of writing a script. I will be writing alongside you through each step, providing you with an example script that I will be writing:
- The first 10 pages
- The debate section
- The main part of the script
- The midpoint and moving through the second act.
- The denouement and the wind-down of the third act.
Anyone can write a script! Whether you're a beginner or have written scripts before, but want to pick up some speed and traction. This course is for you. By the end of this course, your script should be DONE.

You will pick your protagonist. Who is your main character? What makes them special/not special? How are they integral to the story? What job do they have?
All stories are about 5 things:
But where does this happen in the world? One location or several locations? Picking your situation and world will help you creatively piece a story together.
By the end of this section you should have finished the bulk of your script. Each scene should be moving the story forward. Your character should be living the adventure, encountering obstacles and over coming these obstacles in line with the genre of your script. These obstacles should be getting harder and worse.
You should reach the midpoint (something bad usually happens here) which is the counterpoint of the second act. This will leave your protagonist scarred and struggling through physically and emotionally while reaching their main goal. This will take you to the end of the second act of your script.
