Description

This course covers the basics in screenwriting format with two ‘hands-on’ instructional videos which teach you everything you need to know in how to format and develop an industry standard screenplay. There are many courses that offer the same thing but not from produced screenwriters. I don’t teach theory here, I teach practicality. After this short course you will be able to create a screenplay. If you ever plan to write a screenplay but don’t know where to start, you are in the right place. This crash course will teach you, in just a matter of hours, the proper way to format and create your first screenplay. If your screenplay isn’t in the right format, it will not be read by industry professionals. You can have a great story but they won’t read it. People have tried to send me screenplays that were not even close to correct format and they said “I’d get the idea.” Well, if they don’t take the time to learn how to write a screenplay why should anyone take the time to read it? I hope you enjoy this course. Please take the time to rate it when you are done. Thank you for your support.

My name is David and I live in a small town in East Texas. I began writing screenplays my freshman year in college. I spent many years learning the craft of screenwriting while getting rejected over and over.  It was also in college that I started trying out for roles in film. After working on many movie sets and writing many screenplays, I decided that I was going to start making my own films. I teach two courses at Udemy. One is in screenwriting and the other is in independent film-making. I have had success in both areas and would like to give you some practical knowledge on how you could do the same. I have had a screenplay nominated at the International Christian Film Festival and both of my movies have won awards.  If screenwriting and making movies are your passion, or you want to learn how to either, check out my affordable, short, and practical courses.Show moreShow less
