Horror Feature Development Lab
Jan 21 to Feb 25 — Sundays, 10:00am-1:00pm (PDT)
Instructor: Ross Lazar
This is the course upon which your terrifying horror spec will be built. Horror Feature Development Lab will take you from horror 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.
Expect to work hard, this is an intensive course. Your instructor will share their experience on breaking into the business, navigating pitfalls, and selling a horror script. If you’re trying to develop that dynamic horror spec, this is the place to start.
Classes cover: Hooks, Scares, Horror Mythology along with fundamental screenwriting tools such as: Story Structure, Three-Act Structure, Character Development, Dynamic Relationships, Transformational Arcs, Stakes and Conflict, Dilemma, Theme and more. What you’ll learn here will not only help you create a game-changing horror franchise, but also help you sustain a career.
Testimonial: “I had a great time in Ross’s class. He is a really passionate and thoughtful teacher. In his feedback, and in our class discussions, I could tell he thought deeply about our work. He provided notes that I feel will help enhance my project in subsequent rewrites, and was also incredibly encouraging during the often vulnerable process of writing and sharing a first draft. Especially in this being the first feature I’ve worked on, Ross was a great guide to have along the way. I would definitely take another class with him.” — Simone Leon
