Feature Draft Intensive
Feb 28 to Apr 18 — Tuesdays, 6:30pm–9:30pm (PDT)
Instructor: Stacey Miller
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: “I had a really wonderful, positive experience in the class with Stacey. It was my first Script Anatomy class and I really enjoyed the structure. I appreciated the lectures which I found to be a great reminder of foundations that I had learned years ago — and Stacey applied them to examples that helped reflect it. She was always collaborative, kind, complimentary, and professional with everyone in class regardless of our professional experience. I think she pushed all of us and was able to adjust to help people who had never attacked a piece of writing like this with grace and helpful thoughts to get students to really understand their “whys” of the story. Overall, I would recommend the class and Stacey to anyone who is looking into taking a class.”
