Studio C Artists is pleased to announce an eight week screenplay writing class with award winning writer C Jay Cox. Moving from concept through structure and creation students will write a complete feature screenplay in 8 weeks.

Specifically, students will:

  • Learn how to specifically structure a feature length screenplay
  • Create a writing habit that will move you through the writing process and beyond
  • Create a fertile environment to enhance the creative process by giving criticism without being critical (how to protect/defend your vision without being defensive)
  • Learn how to utilize the opportunities and overcome the common obstacles writers face in every screenplay

Some of C Jay’s credits include:

  • Sweet Home Alabama starring Reese Witherspoon, Patrick Dempsey, and Josh Lucas
  • Latter Days–directorial debut–won the HBO award for Best First Feature Narrative
  • New in Town starring Renee Zellwegger and Harry Connick, Jr.

The eight weeks will be broken down in following way:

Week One: Discuss screenplay concept; log lines; theme vs. plot; setting up structure

Week Two: Dialogue about dialogue; how action creates character; screenplay “real estate”

Week Three: Making yourself start and making yourself stop; upping the stakes

Week Four: Digging ditches and building bridges: making connecting scenes interesting

Week Five: Curse of the dreaded page 60; how to edit, when to edit, and when not to do it

Week Six: Writing pictures: using metaphor, imagery and assigning meaning; eyeing the finish line

Week Seven: Final set pieces; payoffs; resolutions

Week Eight: Who to show your work to and when; how to ask for feedback; the next step
