Feature Draft Intensive
Dec 13 to Feb 7 — Saturdays, 10:00am–1:00pm (PDT)
Instructor: Thane Economou
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: “Thane is a fantastic instructor who has a deep passion for cinema, great sense of storytelling and respect for his students. He made the lecture part his own, continuously using every single script in class as an example to introduce Script Anatomy terms. During the feedback portion of the class, Thane helped solve vairous story problems by pitching specific solutions, grounded in his stunning knowledge of almost every movie that’s ever been made. Plainly put, Thane’s brain is full of knowledge and he’s eager to share it with his students. I’ve been recommending his class to everyone and will continue doing so.“—Sasha Feiler
