It's time to take your writing to the next level, to go deeper, to get better, to push yourself to write not just "great stories" but "incredible stories." Continue your storytelling and screenwriting journey with Writer/Director Julio Vincent Gambuto. Julio has created content for Nickelodeon, Kerner Entertainment, PBS, E! Entertainment, and Rabbit Bandini. His latest project, "Team Marco," a new family film, was recently released by Samuel Goldwyn Films. It goes international in 2022.
In this five-part workshop, you’ll get useful, effective, and practical tools for sharpening your storytelling. You'll do a deep-dive on act structures, sequences, and scenes; you'll understand how to work with progressions, stakes, climaxes; you'll learn how to design your world, your characters, your scenes and sequences, and how to ultimately make sure your readers and audience members walk away with a clean, clear, powerful message.
JVG will guide this intimate group of 10-20 through five highly interactive learning modules:
Session 1: Deep dive into act structures. Review the act structures presented in Story 1, or — if you didn't take Story 1 — review them so the whole class is speaking the same language. Learn nuances of designing your acts and how to work in more acts than three.
Session 2: Architecting Sequences. Understand how to design sequences so they drive story effectively.
Session 3: Crafting Scenes: Learn how to build a scene so that it packs the most punch.
Session 4: Next-level techniques. Learn character decisions, progressions, stakes, climaxes, and "the five faces." Also, we'll cover world and character design. Fully flesh out your world, the rules, your characters and their unique voice.
Session 5: Core messaging. The art and science of "baking" your core message in — so that it's fully integrated for all production departments who will ultimately bring your story to life on screen.
