Feature Development Lab

Jul 12 to Aug 16 — Tuesdays, 6:30pm-9:30pm (PDT)

Instructor: Brandy Finmark

Feature Development Lab is the course upon which all of our feature writing courses are built. You will go from concept to outline over 5 weeks by applying Script Anatomy’s tools. Suitable for both new and experienced writers.

Each week, you will learn a new writing tool, and then receive a corresponding assignment in which you apply it to your own project. You will also give and receive weekly feedback, from your instructor and your peers, providing you with an honest evaluation of your material in a dynamic and supportive environment.

Expect to work hard, this is an intensive course. What you’ll learn here will sustain you throughout your career.

Your instructor will share his/her experience on breaking into the business, navigating pitfalls, selling projects. If you’re new to Script Anatomy, and serious about your feature, this is the place to start.

Classes cover: Brainstorming Your Concept / Logline / “Elevator Pitch” / Creating Compelling Characters / Stakes and Conflict / Dynamic Relationships / Analyzing Three Act Structure / Outline / Theme / Transformational Arc / Set-pieces / Cinematic Imagery

Testimonial: I took Script Anatomy’s feature writing class taught by Brandy and I learned so much in this class. Brandy methodically goes through the mechanics and break down every component and step of writing a successful feature, removing the guesswork and making the process feel very manageable. Her love of movies and passion for dissecting character arcs, story structure, what works and what doesn’t work is amazing. If you are intimidated by writing a feature or just want to get helpful notes from professionals and hard deadlines to start your next spec, then take this class immediately!— Joanne Lee, Staff Writer on Coop & Cami Ask The World
