TV Pilot Crash Course
Reviewed by Lydia H. on 10/28/2018
This class was informative and encouraging! Dylan was an engaging speaker and an engaged listener, and laid out the foundational elements of writing a tv pilot. I would recommend having an idea for a pilot in mind to get the most out of the exercises done in class.
