WINTER: Kelley Baker's Screenwriting Workshop | Jan 23 - Feb 20

“Now, what is it which makes a scene interesting? If you see a man coming through a doorway, it means nothing. If you see him coming through a window - that is at once interesting.” ~ Billy Wilder

We all have ideas that we think, “would make a great movie." We tell our friends and family all about it, but we never get around to writing it. This class will help you put your ideas on paper.  Writing a good screenplay can be intimidating. What are the rules?  How do you the format a script?  What is the three-act structure that everyone is always talking about? How do you write visually and how come my dialog never sounds like real people talk? This workshop will walk you through the writing process and give you the advice and tips you need to write your story. Through books, classic screenplays and writing exercises you’ll learn the craft behind screen writing.  Kelley emphasizes the importance of the idea, character development, dialogue, and conflict and resolution. You will pitch an idea and work on it during this class. Beginning & Intermediate Screenwriters are welcome.
