Feature Draft Intensive
Aug 10 to Sep 28 — Tuesday, 6:00pm–9:00pm (PDT)
Instructor: Gabby Revilla Lugo
Have a feature outline to take to draft? Or a draft that needs to be rewritten? Maybe you’ve taken our Feature Development Lab class and want deadlines and feedback as you head into the draft?
Feature Draft Intensive is a structured 4 session class designed for screenwriters who have a completed outline and are ready to write their draft. It will help you get that unfinished project written and polished while reviewing Core Structure and other key elements as well as focus on tools.
It begins with a pre-class prep week in which writers hand in their outline and read a comedy or drama script chosen by the screenwriting instructor. In Week One writers receive notes on their outlines from their peers and the instructor. In Weeks Two and Three, they receive notes on the first and second halves of their scripts.
Though this is not a rewrite class, there will be revising and retooling of story and key elements.
Classes Include: Deepening Emotional Moments / Amping up Stakes/Conflict / Character Relationship Progression / Charting your Character’s Transformational Arc / Illustrating Themes
Required: Feature Development Lab or equivalent experience.
Testimonial (s): “I took the six-week intensive class with Gabby after I heard her on a webinar Script Anatomy hosted about PALM SPRINGS which I loved. She was a delight, full of heart and knowledge. The classes were challenging, but she has a way of explaining difficult concepts and be so encouraging you can’t fail. Between classes, she was accessible for questions and was invested in each person’s project. By the end, we felt like a team cheering each other on. I finished with a stellar outline I couldn’t have done myself. I’m definitely going to take her first draft class to complete my script that I am more committed to than when I started.” — Betty Sullivan
