Structure

Story structure is the most important aspect of writing a screenplay. If your script isn’t connecting with audiences it’s almost always because it has a structural problem.

In this long and comprehensive workshop, Kevin Townsley (Good Times (reboot), Netflix) breaks down all the critical elements of story structure for TV and film. Expect to learn about beats, scenes and outlines; how to escalate beats and arc a story; and how to implement the five central pillars for story structure from the inciting incident, all the way through to the resolution.
