Feature Draft Intensive
Aug 27 to Oct 15 — Saturdays, 10:00am–1:00pm (PDT)
Instructor: Adrian Vina
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.
Testimonials: “Adrian did such a lovely job at providing a space that was safe to share our work and ideas without fear of judgement. I could tell he really took the time to read all of our assignments, as he provided thoughtful notes and a ton of support as we developed our kernels of ideas into full-fledged outlines. Having an instructor who is positive, encouraging, and just as excited about our ideas as we are is so invaluable — and that’s exactly how learning from/working with Adrian was. I’m looking forward to going to draft with my script and hopefully taking another class with Adrian through Script Anatomy at some point!“—Ashley Bower
