Take your screenwriting to the next level

Having completed the Raindance Screenwriting Foundation Certificate, or an equivalent, it’s time to bring your screenplay concept to life, building from your story outline.

Our 6-evening Level II program focuses on the actual writing and helps you understand not only how to construct your own story with external feedback, but also how to offer feedback on stories generated by other writers. This program is writing-intensive—you’ll generate 10-15 pages every two weeks—and is limited to 9 participants to ensure that everyone’s work gets the attention it deserves.

What you’ll learn:

By the end of this 6-week program, participants will have a solid understanding of storytelling as seen from multiple perspectives, and be well on their way to completing the first draft of their screenplays. As well, the program will provide insights on developing a career as a screenwriter, covering topics such as getting past gatekeepers, finding and negotiating paid work, networking and competitions, and finding representation.

Week 1:    So, what’s your story?

  • Meeting your new community
  • Table read & feedback: Group A

 

Week 2:     Embracing the gatekeepers

  • Challenges in getting read; first page or first 10 pages?
  • Table read & feedback: Group B

 

Week 3:    Staying alive

  • Surviving and thriving as a writer; paid assignments
  • Table read & feedback: Group A

 

Week 4:    Being seen

  • Competitions and conferences; networking and social media
  • Table read & feedback: Group B

 

Week 5:    Finding a champion

  • Manager vs agent
  • Table read & feedback: Group A

 

Week 6:    Playing nicely

  • Working with others
  • Table read & feedback: Group B

 

Who should take this course?

Writers and aspiring writers who’d like a solid foundation in writing screenplays, creating compelling stories and characters, and who have a film, TV or web series idea they’d like to develop further; writer-directors; producers and actors who want to understand the basics of storytelling and how to identify potentially winning scripts.

Please note that all participants will be required to be write pages for table reads every other week.
