Want to write your first screenplay? Or improve your craft? Want to learn what Hollywood producers and studios are looking for in a polished spec script? This weekend intensive will take you through the craft of screenwriting—from story to script to career.
Over 2 three-hour sessions at the Slaughter Lane Alamo Drafthouse, screenwriter Owen Egerton will lead you through hot idea hatching, precision plot building, dynamic character development, powerful scene construction and the secrets of crafting an excellent, sellable screenplay. Using big screen clips and in-hand scripts from such films as The Incredibles, Blood Simple and It’s a Wonderful Life, Owen will explain the essentials of screenplay structure and the more detailed nuances of passionate story-telling. The class will also cover how to move your film from the script to the screen. He’ll share the ins and outs of working with the major studios and key producers of the Hollywood system as well as the hungry filmmakers and fresh voices of independent film.
The Alamo kitchen and bar will be up and running for the class, so you can order off the incredible food and drink menu — from hot coffee to cold beer and some of the best food in town!
