Rather than imposing formulaic models from the outside, we teach a unique approach to organically grow your script from initial idea, to character, to scene, to act, to the movie you’ve always dreamed of writing.
Our retreat classes and seminars utilize Seven Act Structure to help writers of all levels to unearth the underlying structure already present in their writing, get their stories moving again and translate their creative instincts into a form that is viable in the industry. Seven Act Structure takes your focus off of rigid formulas and critical ideas, and puts it back where it belongs: on creating the most compelling journey for your main character. And most importantly, Seven Act Structure honors the intuitive and mysterious nature of the writers craft, allowing you to develop your story organically, one step at a time, even when you don’t know exactly where it’s leading.
Every retreat is different and tailored toward the interests and strengths of the writers present. Some of the past retreat seminars and workshops have included: Hypnosis For Writers Block, Meditative Writing, Screenplay Formatting, Writing For Coverage Readers, Writing For Production, Taking Notes & Giving Feedback, The Art of The Rewrite, Seven Act Structure, Pitching & Marketing For Writers, Goal Setting, Building A Writer’s Lifestyle and More!
