Start plotting your premise


Screenwriters University

Course Name


The most intelligent and intriguing premise in the world is only that—just a premise—until it’s been given a shape that draws an audience in and keeps its attention and investment. Until it’s given a protagonist through which the audience understands the premise in concrete terms, and feels the clearly-defined stakes, someone with whom they can identify and for whom they can cheer. In other words, until the premise has become a story.

This course will examine plotting a screenplay from premise to story. You'll learn how to take your screenplay from the early stages of building idea into a full story to structuring the story to keep tension and investment high in the audience to considering how to build not only structure but texture in the world of your film—how to build an experience of the world, what the events and the world of the story mean for characters and audience alike, not just building up point-by-point plot.

What You'll Learn

• 
How a protagonist is driven by both external and internal motivations
• 
How to use—and go beyond—3-Act structure
• 
How a writer builds not just structure but the texture of story and world
• 
How to ratchet up tension and re-raise stakes throughout a screenplay
• 
How the scene is the essential unit of film storytelling, and how each scene contains its own arc

What You'll Learn

• 
Writers wanting to get from initial concept to full story in just four weeks
• 
Writers who want to understand how primary and secondary genres suggest structure and arc
• 
Provide tools for writers to ratchet up tension and re-raise stakes throughout a screenplay

Testimonials
• 
"The resource materials were very intuitive & refreshing." -UO
• 
"A great course and a great lecturer and loved the feedback. Very helpful!" -GJ
