Spiro Skentzos wrote a script for his Star Wars figurines as kid. He was also the drummer in an all-girl garage band. Only one of these things led to a career.
A quick note to say how much I enjoyed Televisionary with Spiro. He was so insightful and encouraging. And we had the extra bonus to have Molly Coogan as our pseudo-student teacher – such a treat. Thanks for a great course!
I have heard about Script Anatomy for years but have never taken a class. I even follow Tawnya on social media. One of my yearly goals was to take a class to work on my limited series pilot to get it into shape. When I enrolled in the class, I was relieved to know that I would achieve another goal for the year. When I started the course, I was already familiar with drama writing however, the information and the tools given were extremely helpful. Working with Spiro was great because he eagerly and effectively answered all of my questions. I feel even more confident in writing a pilot now and would definitely take another class.
After waking up to work on my homework from Spiro’s class, I found myself going back to the concepts, structure, anecdotes from our sessions. It was extremely fulfilling and empowering to apply the “craft” to what otherwise felt like hard to corral energy. Thanks, Spiro. It’s so clear you know what you’re talking about, and you care, and I’m really grateful for this experience and opportunity to learn from you. You teach really well.
