How to Craft Your Novel Idea Into a Screenplay
Saturday Morning Workshop, September 9, 2017 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Wondering if your novel or story idea will make a good screenplay? Now you can learn from Christine Conradt—a seasoned professional with more than 50 produced film and TV movie credits.  In this half-day workshop, we'll discuss the elements and structure of a screenplay and discuss how to adapt your idea to fit the criteria salable screenplays have. You'll leave with a logline and an outline to begin writing whether you're looking to adapt into a feature, TV movie, or pilot.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn the differences between novel structure and screenplay structure
  • Create a logline for your screenplay
  • Learn what studios and networks are looking for in a screenplay
  • Explore how to transform your chapters into scenes
  • Learn how to convey character nuances efficiently
  • Create an outline so that you may go home and begin writing
  • Look at the differences in format/structure between featuers, TV movies, and pilots

This interactive Master Class is limited in size, so you receive a maximum amount of individual attention in a workshop environment. Get personal attention on your screenplay-- insight you will not receive anywhere else!

Attendees are asked to create and send a logline and one-page synopsis to Christine prior to the workshop. It may be a screenplay that’s already written, or simply an idea. Once enrolled, attendees will receive instructions on how to create a logline and synopsis.
Screenwriting: Crafting Scenes Like a Pro
Saturday Afternoon Workshop, September 9, 2017   1:30 pm – 5:00 pm

A screenplay is made up of scenes that combine to become sequences. Sequences are grouped together to become acts. If you can write a well-paced scene, you have the basis to building a better story. In this workshop, Christine shows how to enter and exit acts, offers tips for writing scenes, explains how to convey time lapses within a scene, and provides examples of screenplays. Participants engage in interactive exercises to help hone their writing skills, and have the opportunity to create their own scenes.

You will learn:

  • How to format a scene in proper screenplay format
  • How to build scenes into sequences
  • How to reveal information within a scene
  • How to seamlessly convey time lapses
  • How to bury exposition within dialog

This interactive Master Class is limited in size, so you receive a maximum amount of individual attention in a workshop environment.

Attendees are asked to write a 1 – 2 page scene and send it to Christine prior to the workshop. It may be a screenplay that’s already written, or simply a stand-alone scene.

Things to bring:
Writing paper or laptop to take notes, and a copy of your logline, synopsis, and scene

There will be a one-hour break for lunch, so you can enjoy the hotel restaurant, or one of several other restaurants in the area. There is also a snack shop and bar in the lobby.
