Learn the steps required to go from idea to completed screenplay in this one-day seminar.

What are the elements of a great screenplay? In this one-day seminar, writer/producer/consultant Tim Albaugh will help you understand how to get from the germ of an idea to the completed script. Through lecture, examples and group discussion, Tim will show you how to identify a great concept, develop engaging cinematic characters, craft a coherent film story structure and a universally recognized theme. Tim will also address the process of getting your finished script into the right hands to move your project and your writing career forward.

In the morning session, Tim will cover story, character and screenplay development. Those who choose to participate in the full-day option can expect an even more in-depth study of screenplay. The afternoon session will expand upon the morning session, covering additional topics such as dialogue and voice, scene construction, subplots and theme.

Workshop cost: $35

All skill levels welcome. This workshop has no enrollment limit and is open to all PK-12 educators, even if receiving a scholarship for another workshop.
