Writing is revising. Whether it’s your first or fourth script you will need a vision for revising and developing your script. This practical class will offer strategic lessons and writing exercises to give you an overview of the rewriting process and help you focus the next draft.


Lessons and writing exercises will help you:


  • explore character psychology, motivation, goals, and flaws in order to strengthen their journey.

  • strengthen theme, plot, and structure.

  • up the stakes and create a memorable story.

  • discover varied types of scenes and when to use them.

  • create a realistic revision plan.


Please note: This class is for those who are already familiar with screenplay format and have written a feature script that they want to further develop or take a short film concept to feature length. Participants will have the option to share script excerpts with the class.


* Community partners include WIFTV, DOC BC and VIVO
