Tools & Fundamentals
You begin training in the essential tools and fundamental skills by actively participating in every aspect of building a complete original script from scratch. You learn seven powerful scriptwriting tools which are the foundation of being a dramatist and prepare you for the courses that follow.
Techniques & Principles
This is the heart of the program – an apprenticeship that rigorously trains you in plot construction and dramatic principles. The nucleus of this course is that we continuously work on multiple scripts that are in varying stages of development. Moving from project to project, we apply all our tools and skills to make each one work, building your writing muscle and training you how to think and execute like a dramatist.
Solo Script Project
To graduate the program, you select a raw premise from the group’s collection of story ideas and then develop, construct, and write a script on your own, in an open workshop format with professional feedback, demonstrating your mastery of every step to Jeff and the group.
