How To Write a Treatment



With Award Winning Screenwriter Jacob Krueger


In this seminar with Award Winning Screenwriter Jacob Krueger, you’ll learn how to write a treatment that makes producers salivate at any phase of the process (from the initial pitch to the final draft)—giving you a vital tool not only for your career, but also for your creative process!


As vital as a great script is to succeeding in this industry, it’s only the very beginning. Successful careers in today’s Hollywood are built on treatments. Whether it’s a pitch for a work-for-hire project or a rewrite, or a step toward getting your spec-script in the door for the big sale or the big festival, if you want to succeed in this lucrative business, you’ve got to learn how to write an effective treatment.

A treatment is more than a summary of what happens in your movie—it’s a compelling pitch on “your take” on the story, a sales document that gets your script to the top of the pile, and a calling card with which you compete with other writers vying for the same gig. It’s a document that reassures a producer they’re in good hands, and which guides you as a writer through revisions and adaptations. And it’s a tool that will be used at every phase of the process to sell your movie to starts, directors, financiers and festivals.
