This group can meet individually with a mentor or work with peers to develop your ideas into a great screenplay.
The ultimate goal, at the end of the workshop is to be able to take your story points and then write your first draft. Then members will go over writing a beat sheet that will introduce the characters, lock down a theme and list significant events that go on in their lives that will make an appealing story. At the end of the workshop, you will have created a killer opening scene and have detailed a clear roadmap to be used to write an engaging screenplay.
