Feature Draft Intensive

Sep 15 to Nov 3 — Sundays, 10:00am–1:00pm (PT)

Instructor: David Kessler

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 have taken two courses with David Kessler, the feature development lab and the feature draft intensive. David has a friendly and jovial teaching style and his love for the craft was apparent from day one. He makes class fun and he really delivers solid and thought-provoking notes. His expertise is in adaptions, but he delivers great insights in all genres. I recommend his class to all writers who are in need of a guiding hand and a supportive attitude.— Katherine Sainte Marie
