A moviegoer has certain expectations of a film's journey, whether conscious or subconscious. When they look at that movie poster, they ask, "Would I pay $10 to see this?" The producer is asking, "Can I raise millions of dollars to make this?" If the answer is "yes," the execution of the concept has to deliver. This class will discuss the techniques to grab a producer's attention and make the execution of your story as good as the hook, all while taking the audience on an emotional ride.
What you'll learn:
  • What the industry standards are and how to format your script.
  • The steps from concept to completion.
  • How to craft a one-sentence logline that explains the entire story's concept and makes a producer request a read.
  • Using structure to take your audience on an emotional ride.
  • How to create interesting heroes and give them an evolution/arc.
  • How to keep your reader turning the page.
  • How to analyze feedback, rewrite and edit your script long before a producer ever sees it.
  • A checklist of what you need before you pitch a producer or agent.
  • Newbie mistakes to avoid, including common things that can make a reader stop in those first few pages.
