Pre-requisite: Beat sheet for an hour-long drama or dramedy finished in TV 1 or TV Drama 1 at Writing Pad. No 1/2 hour projects allowed, no projects that have not been vetted in a Writing Pad TV 1 class.
You have a killer beat sheet for your TV Pilot, but when you sit down to write, everything turns to mush: vague characters, huge data dumps, clunky dialogue, and scenes that go nowhere. In this ten-week Online TV Draft Writing Workshop, you’ll get award-winning playwright Geraldine Inoa’s (The Walking Dead, Charmed) help crafting a rock-solid outline and writing propulsive scenes that have a complete beginning, middle and end driven by stakes, turns, polarity, conflict, obstacles and a clear emotional POV.
You’ll learn to how to open your pilot, capture the imagination of the reader, write with a distinct voice, and introduce your main character like a pro.
By the end of the class you should have major chunks of your pilot written and the confidence to finish it with flair. Emmy not included.
Prerequisites: Beat sheet of TV Drama, or Dramedy finished in TV Drama I TV Pilot or TV Basic writing class at Writing Pad.
