“Beyond Structure” and the Advanced Writer
All WGA writers get $200 off if the strike persists to April 1, whether or not the strike is over by the time of class. Please show your current WGA card at the door.
Many successful writers take “Beyond Structure.” If you’re an advanced writer, thank you. You enrich, you enlighten, you entertain.
You’ve experienced some insightful producers and executives who’ve seen your talents, who’ve give you great feedback, and who’ve championed you.
But you’ve also needed broad shoulders and persistence that would be daunting to most, for you’ve succeeded despite obstacles and politics and sometimes insane script notes delivered by clueless ego-toting weenies and assistants who got promoted one time too many.
You have broad shoulders. You’ve succeeded despite obstacles and politics and sometimes insane script notes delivered by clueless ego-toting weenies and assistants who got promoted one time too many.
The only ones who will ever fully understand what you go through regularly are your fellow writers.
This class is about expanding your pallette. Perhaps you know a dozen ways to make us empathize with a character. In “Beyond Strcture,” you’ll learn 36 more ways to do it.
Perhaps you sometimes give your characters a false persona, the way Will (in “Goodwill Hunting”) puts up a pretense of being nothing special. I call this a “Mask,” and in “Beyond Structure” you’ll learn 8 distinct types of Masks and different ways to integrate their existence and collapse into the plot.
The class offers you one other thing: the ability to create what I call “reproducable magic”. You’ve seen many writers or who write a great script — but the next couple he or she writes aren’t nearly as good. What happened?
The writer intutively commanded many of these techniques, but didn’t know them consciously. Therefore, he or she couldn’t reproduce the magic.
A vastly expanded pallette of techniques, and reproducable magic. That’s what “Beyond Structure” has in store for you.
The class starts with a bang, with 28 ways to add emotional depth to a scene. For some examples, you can take a look at my favorite scene from Crash, or read any of the articles on the site.
My goal is to help your artistry and career flourish for decades to come.
With the money-back guarantee in the class, you can’t go wrong. (You can ask for all your money back up until 4:00pm on the first day.)
By the way, I’m a long-standing WGA member myself.
