A One-Day Session to Accelerate Your Career

Tim and Linda walk you through the four critical components of a classic script. In a warm, collaborative, and focused one-day session, Linda and Tim guide you through the same fundamentals that have propelled their students to great success.

The four fundamentals are necessary to create, write, and sell your screenplay - and they’ve been the core reason Linda and Tim’s students have seen such a great success rate over the years.  

Linda and Tim will take you through these four critical components to writing a successful script:

  1. The Pillars of a Classic Script: We’ll explore what makes a story timely and timeless and how to apply these concepts to your writing.

  2. Structure: Every story has a beginning, middle, and end. We’ll explore the intricacies of screenplay structure and how to use it to your advantage.

  3. Character: Every movie is about someone becoming something. Learn the characteristics that make cinematic characters memorable and castable.

  4. Premise and Theme: Movies aren’t just physical journeys but are also emotional experiences.  We’ll explore the concepts behind premise and theme and how to use them to elevate your work to classic status.
