Eight Thursdays, March 9-May 4 (no meeting on April 6), 6-8pm
Open to all.
Limited to 12 participants.
In this eight-week workshop, Montreal-based screenwriter Allen Markuze will give you the tools to be able to write a TV pilot. He’s going to do so by asking and helping answer the following…
- What is your TV series about?
- Is your idea sustainable?
- What happens episode to episode?
- What’s the theme of your show?
- What are some similar shows?
- Who are your characters?
- Is your pilot going to be a premise episode or an episodic episode?
- What is a three-act structure and five-act structure?
These intimate sessions will involve a mixture of group discussion, critical analysis of TV pilots and shows, and workshopping participants’ own ideas with the goal of completing their own TV pilot. Ideas will be workshopped in groups as well as one-on-one with the workshop leader and fellow participants.
This workshop will take place at the QWF Office (Room 3, 1200 Atwater Avenue, Westmount, Quebec) with up to 2 virtual spots for participants who are unable to attend in-person.
