What you'll learn in this writing class:

The Visual Writing Lab: Advanced Formatting For Screenwriters

What can neuroscience and psychology teach you about writing more visually? Find out in our one day workshop dedicated to helping advanced and newbie writers go beyond the "industry standard" formatting so that they hypnotize readers -- causing the reader to see you film, not just read your screenplay. 

What is action versus description?
What length of sentence is most effective to avoid reader eye fatigue?
How do you write complicated action without it slowing down your read?

We will answer these and all your advanced formatting questions and we will cover the most common mistakes and misunderstandings. For example 90% of screenplays that use continuous in a scene heading are using it incorrectly. 

Stop annoying readers and instead take them on a visceral journey where they get the pleasure of seeing your film!
