How to Write a Script for a Movie Demystified: Write a Marketable Screenplay the Hollywood Way
At a Glance
A moviegoer has certain expectations of a film's journey, whether conscious or subconscious. When they look at the movie poster, they think, "Should I pay $10 to see this?"
But before that even happens, a producer asks, "Can I raise millions of dollars to make this?" If the answer is "yes," the execution of the concept has to deliver. Besides simply “good writing,” producers are looking for scripts with proper format and stories that follow a three-act structure.
Discover the essential techniques that grab a producer's attention and make the execution of your story as good as the hook, all while taking the audience on an emotional ride in “How to Write a Marketable Screenplay: Learn How to Structure your Script the Hollywood Way.”
In this on-demand webinar, Jeanne V. Bowerman, founder of the #scriptchat group on Twitter, teaches you how to write a script buyers will salivate over and audiences will love.
You’ll learn how to:
- Write to Industry standards, from concept to completion
- Craft a logline that explains the concept and makes a producer request a read
- Use structure to take your audience on an emotional ride
- Create heroes with an interesting evolution/arc
- Keep your reader turning the page
- Analyze feedback, rewrite and edit your script long before a producer ever sees it
Plus, you’ll get a checklist of what you need before you pitch a producer or agent, along with a discussion of newbie mistakes to avoid, including the things that make a reader stop after those first few pages.
