EXT. John Hindman's Screenwriting Workshop - NIGHT

The best thing about John is that he's very passionate about making great movies. And he runs down a comparative analysis of the major methods of plot structure, including Syd Field, the hero's journey, and John Truby.

This four week class is designed to introduce you to the tools you need to write a screenplay and also address some of the common pitfalls, mistakes, and miscalculations that writers make. Many great ideas never make it because the writer didn’t have a grasp on the basics of cinematic story telling and the art of screenwriting.

EXT. Michael McCarthy's Comedy Lab (at i.O. West) - NIGHT

McCarthy has created a complete writing curriculum for the i.O. West Theater in Hollywood, where he teaches. The 24-week process stresses monologue writing and the elements of a talk show, in the first stage; sketch writing, and how to prepare a sketch packet for SNL in the second stage; and how to write a sitcom spec script in the third stage. During his workshop his unique take on sketch writing "that mostly champions point of view, allowing righteous indignation to lead, fun with editing and how one succeeds or fails based upon ones knowledge of the intrinsic qualities of a given medium (in other words, why Second City and SNL are different)".

The Comedy Lab! @ i.O. West.

EXT. SHERWOOD OAKS EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGE - NIGHT

I first learned of Sherwood Oaks Experimental College when reading Syd Field's book. I was pleasantly surprised to learn the college was still running (Syd's reference was to classes held there in the early 70s).

I've been to several Sherwood Oaks Events and I think they are quite useful for new writers.

EXT. Syd Field Screenwriting Workshop - NIGHT

SYD FIELD'S 7-WEEK SCREENWRITING WORKSHOP
http://www.sydfield.com/
Los Angeles - February 12 – April 1, 2008
SOLD OUT!
Syd Field is back! For the first time in almost 10 years, the legendary "guru of all screenwriters," according to CNN, is conducting a brand new screenwriting workshop for a limited number of participants.

This intense 7-Week Screenwriting Workshop (to be held in Los Angeles) meets one night each week from 7:30PM to 10:30PM.

This individual, hands-on screenwriting workshop features interactive discussions, illustrations from Academy Award winning films, and personal one-on-one evaluations of the screenwriting assignments. The purpose of this course is to "expand, enlarge and broaden your knowledge, comprehension, and technique of the screenplay and the art and craft of screenwriting."


I sat between a professional television writer (there to learn how to write feature films) and the dean of the Film & TV writing department of a local university.

EXT. DOV S-S SIEMENS HOLLYWOOD FILM SCHOOL - NIGHT

DOV S-S SIEMENS HOLLYWOOD FILM SCHOOL
http://www.webfilmschool.com/
During the past 15 years, I have taught how to produce, write or direct with amazing success (graduates to date have grossed over $2 Billion) and have perfected my craft. I am proud of my teaching ability. I do not present myself as a great producer or the great director. For I am not! And great producers or directors, the Spielbergs & the Coppollas, you will discover are not great
teachers.


This is the best place to learn the first steps of screenwriting. It puts screenwriting in a practical context and sets forth the proper legal foundation for establishing a valid chain of title. Almost nobody else in Hollywood is teaching that, which is an essential aspect of the business of filmmaking.
