Script Outline – Know the Rules Before Breaking Them;
Overview of standard 110 page screenplay “Hollywood Formula,”
The FOUR Act Screenplay ,
The BOARD: Laying out the different beats from your screenplay in a way so that you can visualize the scenes, story arcs, pieces of dialogue, and work out the problems even before you start writing it out,
SCENE breakdown: What goes into writing a scene, and how to connect one scene to the next.
Priority registration is dedicated to 2019 Nexus participants but if you would like to join please email Hlee Lee-Kron, Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will work to include you.
