Winning Sci-Fi/Fantasy Story Structures
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Sci-Fi and Fantasy scripts can either captivate an audience or turn them off completely. It all starts with a great script. A script with a strong structure has a better chance of attracting producers and an audience.
What do great Sci-Fi and Fantasy scripts have in common? What turns the audience away from these movies in spite of high expectations? This webinar will look more closely at how winning movies were structured through comparing box office hits with box office duds. And give an overview of their structures.
Nancy teaches advanced screenwriting at Pepperdine University as well as the online course “Conventions of the Screenplay” for Screenwriters University.
