Writing a Screenplay is hard – A great way to start is learning to craft One Scene in a Screenplay Format.
My name is Olaf. I am a do–it–yourself filmmaker with a two–decade experience. In this class, I’ll share all the tools that I’ve learned by completing over thirty full–length screenplays.
This class is for anyone who has written a story and wants to write for Film & TV. Regardless if you’re a beginner, or have just started screenwriting, this class will deepen your understanding and help you develop as an author.
Your class project is to complete ONE SCENE in a screenplay format.
If you can master writing ONE SCENE, (I did the math) you can write MANY SCENES and complete a screenplay for Film or TV.
- Fundamentals to write your screenplay
- How to prepare for writing a film scene
- Develop personal writing strategy
- The pace and structure of a film scene
- The importance of on-page aesthetics
- Tons of tools that can spare you unnecessary agony
METHOD I’ve spent years developing and testing the METHOD for this class and I can’t wait to share it with you. The method is a gradual process of (almost) annoyingly slow and simple process, presented through series of contained lessons.
This course will not only demystify the screenwriting process but also liberate your creative strengths and help you manifest your ideas.
We will be chopping down bluprints, demystifing the process, tickeling elephants, talking about structure, rhythm, the importance of blank space, transitions, the limits and the powers of writing in a screenplay format.
I’VE BEEN TEACHING writing for years and learned that it’s one thing to teach writing – but quite another of getting it across. Teaching writing is not about what I teach, but how I can invite you to teach yourself.
