SHAMANIC SCREENWRITING WORKSHOP
4 Week workshop for Screenwriters, TV writers, Playwrights & Novelists
Welcome to the future of script development.
Discover how to shape-shift for the creation of a magnificent screenplay. Become your character, channel your audience, step into the mind of your producer. This workshop is unlike any other.
In this workshop, we focus on you. Your mind, Your story, Your goals. We approach the art and craft of screenwriting with a modern holistic approach, utilizing research in evolutionary biology, neuroscience, and psychology, combined with the current (and future state of) the film industry.
By focusing on the way you approach the page, you will build a set of tools that will apply to every script you ever write. Never again stare at a blank page and not know where to start. Imagine every time you read a scene and think this just isn't working; you have a myriad of tools at your fingertips.
We deep dive into your understanding of character, action, structure, theme, dialogue, subtext and most importantly - story, to provide feedback that helps shape your mind as a writer as well as your scenes on the page.
Every week you will discover and practice new tools for building story and structure through character, theme, and intuition. In-class exercises will assure your abilities to utilize these skills on your own. You will also get the opportunity to workshop a sequence from your screenplay for in-depth feedback. Every week you will also have access to a series of at-home assignments allowing you to stay active in developing your story for 28+ full days.
Mondays, starting September 24th, 4 weeks, 7pm - 9:45pm EST
IN PERSON: 39 W 29 Street 2nd Fl, New York, NY 10001
