Feature Draft Intensive

Oct 26 to Dec 14 — Thursdays, 6:30pm–9:30pm (PDT)

Instructor: Brandy Finmark

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.

Testimonial: No matter if this is your first script or your tenth, Brandy freely shares her infectious enthusiasm for movies and her hard-earned experience to all her students. The feedback I receive from Brandy manages to get me unstuck and out of my own way, enabling me to produce work that I’m proud to sign my name to.  She’s one of the few working screenwriters who makes time to teach up-and-coming writers while juggling multiple projects in development.— Victor Glazer
