Even though you look at scenes from Academy Award winning movies every day, this class is NOT JUST FOR SCREENWRITERS. In fact, many of the students in Linda Bergman’s classes are memoirists, novelists, essayists, poets or even beginning writers taking the class because they’ve heard, “…She knows how to get you to good story and get you there fast!”

 

In “ So You Think Your Life’s A Movie – Reel Magic!”, you learn how to find your A, B and C stories, find the arc of those stories, create protagonists that you believe and root for and antagonists that change as much as your hero. You learn to write believable dialogue, research your project, write bios for each of your characters and create the structure of a saleable script.

 

During the course of the workshop, Bergman lectures, gives writing exercises and by the last day, expects her students to have written a two-page, two-person scene that they cast from other students in the class
and put it on its feet! It’s fast, it’s fun. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry. The information is cumulative so come early and stay late! Or, as Margo Channing would say: “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night!”


--All About Eve, 1950
