My screenwriting mentor and I now have scaffolding for my screenplay.
“It’s a very basic framework involving an overall story and order of events. I also decided how I want to begin my story and I will be writing the first 2 scenes this week. I had already written a first scene and now I’m going a different direction. One thing that I really like about my screenwriting mentor, Brian, is how he encourages me to develop ideas without developing them for me or over suggesting things. What I really needed a person who could help me maintain my confidence level in my own ideas and style, and he does that well- offering ideas around practicality and considerations without controlling or impacting my story too much.”
Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
