Feature Draft Intensive
Sep 17 to Nov 5 — Saturdays, 10:00am–1:00pm (PDT)
Instructor: David Kessler
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: “David Kessler is an absolutely incredible teacher. He makes class fun but is very direct, which I appreciate. I felt like he was holding my hand through it, but also wasn’t afraid to rip into my script in all the right ways. I feel that he truly cares about my personal success, and gives notes that are very applicable. Sometimes vague or broad notes can drive a writer crazy, but he always gives you a strong sense of direction so that you know where to go and what changes to make. I would highly recommend his class or his private consulations. I will absolutely be sending in every script I ever write to David, until Hollywood catches up to what a gem he is and he has no more time for me.” — Dia Frampton
