About the Course
In this project-centered course*, you will design a series bible and write a complete pilot episode for your own unique television or web series, be it drama or comedy or something in between.
You’ll learn to break down the creative process into components, and you’ll discover a structured process that allows you to produce a polished and pitch-ready script in just a few weeks. Completing this project will increase your confidence in your ideas and abilities, and you’ll feel prepared to pitch your first script and get started on your next.
This is a course designed to tap into your creativity and is based in “Active Learning”. Most of the actual learning takes place within your own activities – that is, writing! You will learn by doing.
To begin with, any basic word processor will do. During week two, you can choose to download some free scriptwriting software such as Celtx or Trelby or you may choose to purchase Final Draft, or you can continue to use your word processor and do your own script formatting.
- Develop your TV series concept
- Write Act One of your pilot episode
- Write Act Two
- Act Three
- Polish your script, create a Cold Open and finish the Season One Bible
