DEVELOPING A KILLER CONCEPT

The reason why most independent feature film scripts don’t see the light of day has everything to do with the concept. A seasoned writer doesn’t need to sell a script, in fact it’s easier to sell a treatment these days. Sometimes all a writer or producer needs to do is pitch the concept to their story to get a greenlight. Learn how and why.    

 

Once you have your amazing concept, the screenplay for every successful feature film, no matter how abstract it may be, contains 15 crucial beats within the story. Learning the significance of each beat in fine detail and identifying each beat before writing your screenplay will inevitably make it easy to write the script, or sell the fleshed-out concept as a treatment. 

 

Whether you are starting your first screenplay, or you are a seasoned writer, you will leave this seminar with more confidence, knowledge, and ability to know what elements go into a bankable 2-3 page outline as well as a 7-10 page treatment which easily translates into a feature length screenplay. But first and foremost, you will leave this seminar never forgetting how crucial the concept is and what makes an idea shine.
