Killer TV Pilot Architecture clinic.
Writing a TV pilot is a tall order for anyone and without firm footing, your feet are as good as clay. Fortunately, whether you’re writing a thriller set in outer space or an angsty teen love romance set on a Montana ranch there’s a set of basic principles that will help you consistently arrive at “the end.” In this one-day structure clinic, TV Writers Ava Tramer (Netflix’s Atypical) and Daniel McLellan (Netflix’s Lost in Space) will help you apply the toolset of the scribe to root your story in a clearly defined genre, give it a rock-solid spine and compelling arcs that launch your pilot firmly into series. Through inspiring lectures, fun writing exercises and Q & A, you’ll learn how to craft an irresistible spine that will never lead you astray. By the end of the class, you’ll have all the necessary tools at your disposal to put your TV series on firm footing! Topics include: Act breaks, ABC Stories, reversals, twists, arcs, weaves, cliffhangers, blows and more.
