Welcome to Screenwriting 104! I’ll be talking about the ways of rewriting and polishing your screenplay. If you haven’t watched them yet, in my previous courses I talked about the fundamentals of screenwriting, the Save the Cat Method, the Sequence Approach and The Hero’s Journey. This course will focus on how to rewrite your screenplay according to Jack Epps’ book called Screenwriting Is Rewriting. Moreover, I think it is also a way to start a great 1st draft.
