Check-in and welcome drinks: Sunday, 2 July 2017
Workshop: Monday, 3 July - Friday, 7 July 2017
9:00am - 1:00pm
--- Open to non-members ---
Have an amazing idea for a film, but don't know how to begin writing it?
Learn from master teacher and writer John Jacobsen in his first-ever screenwriting workshop offered in Paris. He will take you through the fundamentals of screenwriting—structure, character, dialogue, theme, etc.--using film clips and samples. There will be time for you to share your ideas with the group as well as work them through individually with the teacher. By the end of the week you will have a good idea of how to build an outline and develop a screenplay. Time permitting, John also will discuss the screenplay in the marketplace including agents, readers, submissions procedures, and marketability.
Students can range from beginners to professionals, from those with just an idea to those with developed screenplays. In addition to a welcome drinks party following student check-in on Sunday, and a farewell dinner (additional cost TBD) on Friday, optional film-related activities will be planned for two afternoons during the session.
Register soon; class size is limited to 12 people.
