Conquer the craft. Tell your story.
It’s a common tale. A brilliant idea flashes across your mind. Something cinematic, gripping, and emotive, and you think, “This should be a screenplay. Somebody should write this. Wait a minute, I should write this!”
So you begin. You breeze through a few books on screenplay format, and before you know it, words are pouring from your fingers. The action crackles, the dialogue sings, and in no time at all, you’ve got a full script that is GENIUS from page one to ‘FADE OUT.’
Or, if you’re like most, you come to a screeching halt somewhere well short of the end of Act One, wondering what in the blue blazes to do next. Because—and you may already know this—writing a screenplay is hard. Even the best writers can get lost out there. What hope do the rest of us have?
Quite a bit, it turns out. Because screenwriting is not just an art, it’s a craft. And like all crafts, it has conventions, tools, shortcuts, and shorthand, all of which have evolved over the history of cinema and TV to serve the writer as she sculpts her story, from initial idea to final draft.
We’re here to help you every step of the way, from idea, structure, and character development, to honing page craft, dialog, and action prose. Let us help you tell your story. It’s going to be good. We can tell.
