MAKING A GOOD SCREENPLAY GREAT!
DR. LINDA SEGER Master Class Presenter
Friday Noon-2:PM Driftwood Room
Making a good script great is more than just a matter of putting a good idea on paper in proper screenplay format. It requires the working and reworking of that idea. This popular master class by a very successful Hollywood “script doctor” takes you through the whole screenwriting process – from initial concept through final rewrite – providing specific methods that will help you craft tighter, stronger, and more saleable scripts. If you are writing your first script, this master class will help develop your skills for telling a compelling and dramatic story. If you are a veteran screenwriter, it will help you articulate the skills you know intuitively. And if you are currently stuck on a rewrite, Dr. Seger will help you analyze and solve your script’s problems and get it back on track. She presents the craft of successful screenwriting principles clearly and succinctly, with familiar examples, and enables the writer to approach his or her own writing much more confidently. (Workshop seating is limited to 25)
