Pilot Bootcamp (Drama & Comedy)

Sep 17 to Dec 10 — Tuesdays, 6:30pm – 9:30pm (PT)

Instructor: Zak Schwartz

This class is the step-by-step process of how to write an undeniable pilot script. Taught by a seasoned writer with credits on over ten shows over the past 15 years. Zak is now a Co-Executive Producer.

Over the ten-session class you will go from seed of an idea to a first draft. It’s a cross between Televisionary and a Pilot Lab class.

In the first 4 weeks, you will complete and get feedback on Script Anatomy’s signature tools. Next, the focus shifts to “breaking” your story, honing your tracks and beats, exactly as it’s done in a professional writers room. The last two classes will take you to outline and then to first draft. This process of this class will perfectly prepare you for what it’s like to work on a show as a professional writer. It will also give you the skills you’ll need when you sell your first pilot.

Testimonial: “I LOVED having Zak as my instructor for class. His professional writing experience was exactly what I hoped for when signing up for a Script Anatomy class. He had lots of anecdotes and advice based on real world situations and I found that invaluable. Zak’s attitude fostered an environment that really helped me feel comfortable taking risks and pitching ideas not only for my concepts but for others in the class as well. I looked forward to going to class because I knew Zak would be teaching it and I would learn interesting and applicable things for my nascent writing career. Zak’s feedback was great! During class Zak fostered an inclusive and exciting discussion about everyone’ screenplays. I felt like Zak provided timely and helpful feedback whenever I reached out to him. He made an effort to remain available for questions the entire class. 10/10 I would take a Zak Schwartz class again.” – Joshua Kinne
