Word Shop: Screenwriting by the Numbers- Rule: 3 + 1: The Screenplay Formula
Everyone has a story to tell – and we’d all secretly like to write the next great American movie script. Fresh City Life is proud to present a series of workshops taught by talented screenwriter and teacher, Darren Foster.
What makes a story great? Why do some stories soar, and others just fizzle? What makes the reader want to keep reading? All of these questions can be answered with a very basic formula: 3+1. In this class we'll learn how solid structure and strong character development can give you freedom, instead of limitations. We'll investigate a few templates like the three-act structure, the "Hero's Journey", and character archetypes. We might even write a short screenplay in class. And in the end, we'll tie it all back to a very simple formula, 3+1. Registration is required. Please register online http://denverlibrary.org/fresh#rule or call 720-865-1206.
