What you can learn.

  • Learn how to capture the essence of your show in the first moments of the pilot

About this course:

In this intensive workshop, you write a solid outline of your pilot script and work on drafting the first ten pages. You begin by refining your story idea and outline as needed and then write your teaser, all the while focusing on capturing the essence of the show through its act structure, plot and story, multiple storylines, characters, scenes, and dialogue. By the end of the course, you have strong act breaks, a full beat outline, and a critique of the first 10 pages of your original one-hour pilot script.
