This intensive workshop is designed to guide you through the process of writing, pitching, and ultimately selling your original movie idea to a studio or production company. How do professional screenwriters develop and sell their feature ideas to movie producers? In this 4-week-program we will recreate the step-by-step process every professional screenwriter has to go through when pitching their movie to a studio. Starting with a one-line movie concept (known as a log-line) we will help you transform this kernel into a fully structured outline and pitch. This class is meant to be rigorous and challenging, but at the end of the 4-week-program you will be given invaluable tools to help sell your movie on a professional level.
