Screenplay Story Structure Seminar

A screenplay is like a Jenga tower – everything must be in the right place or it all falls apart.

In this seminar, learn the basic 3-act structure and the specifics of how it applies to screenwriting. We will discuss how to establish the world quickly and effectively, the purpose, use, and placement of turning points, and how to ensure you’ve set up your climax with a balanced resolution.

You will learn how to map out the 3-act structure and identify the key elements. Together, we’ll practice identifying the key plot points of the movies we know and love.

Story Structure is the building block of all screenwriting- join us for this fun and educational seminar!

Note: this session is closed, but Rebecca is always happy to work with screenwriters in a one-on-one writing coaching and editing capacity. Please reach out any time!

Seminar Format

The online seminar is fully interactive and takes place via live video conference (which is recorded, so you can watch it on replay). During the seminar, you’ll have ample opportunity to share your work, talk through and practice craft issues, and ask questions about the genre.

Assignments, readings, and video clips will guide you on your screenplay writing journey.
