Rewrite Toolbox: A 2-Day Intensive Workshop

FILM TV X 431.11

Develop a toolbox of practical techniques for diagnosing what works and what doesn’t in your completed script draft, and prepare a strategy to revise and rewrite.


What you can learn.

  • Learn skills to assess what works and what doesn’t work in your script draft
  • Develop practical techniques to examine your work objectively
  • Prepare strategies for revision and rewriting your script

About this course:

Writing a first draft is the "dating" phase of creating a polished, marketable screenplay; the long and complex process of revising it requires the commitment of a marriage between you and your material. Designed for dedicated writers with a full draft feature film script and the willingness to acquire rewriting tools through specific exercises, this seminar covers skills to assess what works and doesn't in your script. Acquire a toolbox of practical techniques for examining your own work objectively and diagnosing its strengths and problems; prepare a strategy for making corrections; and, once you determine the relationship is worth the effort, jump into the rewriting process. The course goal is to leave the seminar ready to revise an existing piece of work.
