Writing the Half-Hour Pilot II

FILM TV X 432.7

Finish your half-hour pilot script as you rework, refine, and revise your progress made until you reach the end.


About this course:

This workshop guides you to write a solid draft of an original pilot script from your half-hour outline created in a previous course. You start by reworking your story idea and outline as needed, fixing story problems and maximizing the comic potential. Special attention is paid to refining the world, characters, tone, and story of your pilot. You then move toward completing a first draft of your script, working on scenes, dialogue, and action, until it captures your original vision and matches a network's likely requirements. You must bring a completed story outline and first 10 pages to the first day of class. This course counts toward the four-course Writer's Fellowship Prep Specialization.
