Feature Focus: The Draft
Past workshop, not currently available
In this course writers will work from completed treatments to create a first draft of their feature screenplay. Participants will learn how to examine and rewrite a treatment to solve problems before beginning their drafts. Discussions will include protagonists and antagonists, action, dialogue and the basics of a scene. Upon completion, writers will have begun their first draft and have a plan to push through to completion.
Participants will be required to have a treatment for a feature film completed prior to the beginning of the course.
