Feature Development Lab
Dec 3 to Jan 21 — Sundays, 10:00am-1:00pm (PDT)
Instructor: Thane Economou
Feature Development Lab is the course upon which all of our feature writing courses are built. You will go from concept to outline over 5 weeks by applying Script Anatomy’s tools. Suitable for new and experienced writers both.
Each week, you will learn a new writing tool, and then receive a corresponding assignment in which you apply it to your own project. You will also give and receive weekly feedback, from your instructor and your peers, providing you with an honest evaluation of your material in a dynamic and supportive environment.
If you’re new to Script Anatomy, and serious about your feature, this is the place to start. But expect to work hard, this is an intensive course. What you’ll learn here will sustain you throughout your career.
Classes cover: Brainstorming Your Concept / Logline / “Elevator Pitch” / Creating Compelling Characters / Stakes and Conflict / Dynamic Relationships / Analyzing Three Act Structure / Outline / Theme / Transformational Arc / Set-pieces / Cinematic Imagery
Testimonial: “Thane has a contagious love of movies and passion for craft. His movie knowledge borders on encyclopedic. He gets everyone in class involved and gives us the confidence to feel like we belong in the industry. I appreciate Thane’s feedback style. He helps diagnose areas to improve without being overly prescriptive with solutions. He comments and questions and then lets us come up with changes. It’s satisfying because it keeps us in creative control of our scripts. Yet these fixes wouldn’t have happened if not first prompted by his shrewd comments.”
