The End: How to Write an Amazing Finish to Your Screenplay
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
When you meet up with your friend after they've seen a movie the first thing they blurt out is: "I just saw the best movie! The ending was fantastic. You’ve gotta see it!" That is the best word-of-mouth endorsement that any screenwriter can receive or ever hope for!
Additionally, readers often mention the ending first when writing their coverage. It's the last thing they read and it's what they think about when writing a "recommend" or "pass" when reporting to their boss.
Casablanca, Se7en, Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story, Star Wars, Citizen Kane, and The Godfather all have amazing endings.
These endings pay off by achieving several things: they propel the story to a gripping conclusion; they create a hero who gets what they need and not necessarily what they want; and the ending resolves their P.O.V. of their universe.
In this webinar, you'll learn the crucial structural and emotional elements that your screenplay finale MUST include.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- The anatomy of the third (and final) act, as well as the nuts and bolts of what every third act needs to achieve
- The seven types of “knock-your-socks-off” endings—why they work and why we love them

- How to tell your script visually-- creating a clear and focused ending
