Breaking Story Effectively: Creating the Elements You Need to Write Solid Script Pages

At a Glance

  • Teaches you how to create a detailed story outline and identify any weak story elements before typing fade in
  • Ensures the story outline or beat sheet, has all the supporting walls it needs to carry your story
  • Provides the know-how you need to write a solid first draft, including plot, conflict, and character development

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Structure is just about everything in a screenplay. Your story outline is the blueprint for your movie. Therefore, it’s crucial that your outline is solid. Producers and story executives may labor over an outline for months before they “allow” the writer to go off and write a draft. As you work on your original screenplay, you may have to assume the role of all those other people in the room. It is up to you to make sure you are absolutely ready to write a solid draft. Having a systematic and thorough approach to assessing story outlines can save time in the actual writing process and be a creative adventure.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

  • How to carefully envision the movie in your story outline (beat sheet)
  • A system to ensure you are covering all fundamental elements in your script
  • The 15 most important questions to ask yourself about the story outline
  • How to quickly (and effectively) revise and strengthen your beat sheet

WHO SHOULD LISTEN?

  • Beginning screenwriters
  • Intermediate screenwriters
  • Advanced-professional screenwriters
