TV Draft Intensive

Aug 13 to Sep 10 — Tuesdays, 6:30pm – 9:30pm (PT)

Instructor: Zak Schwartz

Have an outline for a TV spec script or pilot that you want to take to draft? Or a draft that needs to be rewritten? Maybe you’ve taken our Televisionary class and want deadlines and feedback as you head into the draft?

The TV Draft Intensive is a structured 3 session class designed for writers who have a completed script outline and are ready to write their draft. You will get that unfinished project written and polished while reviewing core structure and other key elements.

It begins with a pre-class prep week in which you hand in your outline and read a comedy or drama script chosen by the instructor. In Week One you receive notes on your outlines from your peers and the instructor. In Weeks Two and Three, you receive notes on the first and second halves of your scripts, while reviewing core elements like structure, dynamic relationships and so on.

If you have a draft that needs to be rewritten, or you just want deadlines and feedback as you head into draft, this course will help. You’ll get that unfinished project written and polished while reviewing core structure and other key elements.

For a student’s perspective see Hannah Rosner’s testimonial video.

Classes cover: Structure / Act Outs / Set up / Character Development / Strengthening Dynamic Relationships / Amping up Conflict/ Stakes / Deepening Emotion and/or Comedy / Scene Techniques + In Class Exercises.

Required: Televisionary or equivalent experience.

Testimonial: “Zak leveled the playing field by focusing immediately on the principles of great writing and the tools, templates and intuitive guidelines of Script Anatomy. His honest, positive feedback and professional expertise got us through our drafts. We could not have written our pilot without him or without the GREAT camaraderie he helped create. It was thrilling to see everyone’s stories take shape over the course of our time together and to read final drafts. Zak made himself available to questions and sometimes mine were pretty basic – he never made me feel bad about this. He created a feeling of safety in our class and I could see how this might go sideways in an intense writing environment with a bunch of strangers exploring core wounds and digging into intense material. Zak is clearly at the top of his field and he is a generous, exceptional teacher. Anyone who studies with Zak is lucky.”Joanna Heimbold
