Writing the Spec Screenplay

At a Glance

  • Helps screenwriters come up with film ideas that reflect their attitudes
  • Assists writers in finding their true voice
  • Provides examples of voice within the 3-Act structure

In this how-to video, story consultant Anthony Grieco helps writers first determine their theme and then tell their story with a distinct voice.  By examining each Act separately, Grieco showcases how you can walk your characters through the four quadrants of your story and create a story arc easily understood by the audience.  

In this how-to video, you’ll learn:

  •   Why every lead character is an orphan and how to make that clear in your writing
  •  How to write characters that showcase your theme
  •  How to cross your A story and B story for the climax of your screenplay

This how-to video will help you develop your theme and write scripts in which provocative characters carry that theme throughout the story. Following the 3-Act structure and placing the focus on what you want to say about the world, Anthony walks you through developing a screenplay that sells.
