We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Do you have a story that you think would make a great movie? Do you wonder what it takes to break into the competitive film industry? Join two veteran Hollywood insiders and learn how to identify, express, and sell your story.

During the week you:

  • Tap into your self-expression through exercises
  • Understand the creative and production phases of a film or television series
  • Discover the secrets to creating great treatments and loglines
  • Learn how to navigate through the Hollywood system to get your project noticed, sold, and produced

The workshop is perfect for all writers: those with just an idea; writers wanting to fine-tune a treatment; and writers looking to find out what movie executives are looking for. It is also of interest to screenwriters, directors, and producers seeking tools to increase their projects’ salability.

An accomplished celebrity actor joins us during the week for a guest appearance.
