You’ve got your killer beats. Maybe you’ve even got your fine-tuned outline. But how do you turn those raw materials into the beating heart of an amazing script–the scene? In this one day Scene Writing Workshop, veteran TV and screenwriter Steve Peros (22 scripts sold) will show you how to build your story from the inside out, making each scene a microcosm of your larger story.
Through an engaging lecture, he’ll share his secrets to writing the perfect scene. And your story will crackle with well-crafted moments, authentic dialog, pitch-perfect conflict, and strong emotional beats. You can even bring in a scene for feedback from Steve to take your project to the next level.
33 padders have been staffed & 16 won fellowships at ABC, Fox, CBS and NBC after taking our TV classes.
