Feature Rewrite Lab

Nov 17 to Jan 12 — Sundays, 10:00am – 1:00pm (PT)

Instructor: David Kessler

The next logical class after Feature Development Lab and Feature Draft Intensive.

Writing is rewriting, and this is the place to do it. The first four weeks will be guided classes in which the instructor and your peers will offer honest notes on your material and help you hone the key elements of your project. Notes will be given on the writer’s first 15 pages of their screenplay to which they will have applied the lessons and techniques, except one week where writers will get notes on their relationship progression tool.

Classes cover: You’ll learn techniques to fine tune all aspects of your script, from structure to character development, to dialogue and scene work. Then, you’ll have 3 weeks off to rewrite your script and hand it in. The class will meet for a fifth and final session, after which writers will receive detailed, written feedback from the instructor on their entire script.

Prep work is a brief elevator pitch of the writer’s project that the writer will share in class on the first day.

Requirements: Before class begins, writers must have a completed draft of a feature script that they wish to rewrite. Our Feature Development Lab & Feature Draft Intensive courses are prerequisites.

Testimonial:David Kessler is an absolutely incredible teacher. He makes class fun but is very direct, which I appreciate. I felt like he was holding my hand through it, but also wasn’t afraid to rip into my script in all the right ways.  I feel that he truly cares about my personal success, and gives notes that are very applicable. Sometimes vague or broad notes can drive a writer crazy, but he always gives you a strong sense of direction so that you know where to go and what changes to make. I would highly recommend his class or his private consultations. I will absolutely be sending in every script I ever write to David, until Hollywood catches up to what a gem he is and he has no more time for me.— Dia Frampton
