Join me at UCLA Saturday for Screenwriting Instructor Jen Grisanti’s afternoon seminar.
I’ll be discussing what to expect once a script sells, but the highlight will be Jen’s class and the panel discussion of accomplished writers!
STORYWISE SEMINAR:Â HOW TO TELL A STORY THAT SELLS @ UCLA â€“ Saturday, March 19th 2:00 â€“ 6:00 p.m. in the DeNeve Plaza Bldg., 3rd Floor, Rm B
Jen’s class and panel discussion will cover the components of what makes a strong story in TV and features.Â This will include log lines, drawing from your emotional well, adding fiction to your truth, finding your voice, creating powerful dilemmas and stemming them into clear goals, establishing strong emotional stakes and implementing theme and symbolism.Â She will look at the top features and TV shows and break down what works and why it works. Â She will be teaching from her new book STORY LINE:Â FINDING GOLD IN YOUR LIFE STORY.Â Books will be available for sale after the seminar.
