"What was the screenwriter thinking?"
a unique way to learn a unique craft

Much of the screenwriting process takes place away from a keyboard and desk. The story, the situations, character introductions, subplots, story points, set-ups, "gags", transitions, edits, scene descriptions, etc. are all thought about long before the writer downloads screenwriting software onto their computer. Many times-if not most-the ending is known before the beginning.

In this presentation, we are going to screen an Academy Award-winning movie and dissect it to determine (the best we can) what the screenwriter was thinking during the story structure and outline process.

Free to PAFIA members (or free if you join)
