If You’re An Actor, You’ve Had The Experience of Waiting For That Dream Role To Finally Come Along.
You know you can’t build your career playing paper-thin roles. But finding a play or film with the kinds of characters you dream of playing is sometimes even harder than getting cast in one.
Maybe it’s time to create that role for yourself.
This one of a kind workshop will not only teach you the craft of play and screenwriting. It will profoundly transform your work as an actor, by teaching you to see a role from the other side of the page.
Harness The Power of Seven Act Structure
Rather than imposing formulaic models from the outside, you will learn how to organically “grow” your script, from initial idea, to character, to scene, to act, to the movie you’ve always dreamed of writing.
Learn a New Craft By Drawing on the One You Know
Designed specifically for actors looking for a foundation in writing, and writers looking to understand the craft from an actor’s perspective, this unique four week workshop will show you how to get your creativity flowing at will, and draw upon your acting knowledge to write the kinds of characters that you’d want to play.
A Different Kind of Online Class.
Unlike “online students” at other writing schools, you won’t be dealing with typed out lectures posted to impersonal online bulletin boards. Instead, you’ll be an active participant in the LIVE class. All you need is a computer with a webcam, speakers and a microphone and you will be able to join in class discussions, submit your writing, and receive constructive feedback. And all from the comfort of your own home!
Build A Writing Lifestyle.
This workshop will teach you more than just great writing. It will prepare you to make writing a permanent part of your life. Along the way, you’ll learn how to overcome writer’s block, self doubt, procrastination, and other obstacles to build the writing life you have always wanted for yourself.
