Reviews Average Rating: 5 out of 5

  • So fun. Loved seeing the text scrolling along with the movie. Really great experience seeing how to pick apart and talk about screenplays in constructive, helpful ways. Cool to focus on monologues, but different types of monologues in different formats, and writer's intentional choices, the 'tool kit' we can employ when crafting powerful dialogues on the page. GREAT experience.
  • This was a fantastic webinar. Learned a lot and enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you, Allen.

The Breakdown Webcast: The First 10 Pages

We're back in the Writers' Room for the Breakdown Webcast: The First 10 Pages! The first 10 pages - or the opening sequence of the script - is so important and a good "First 10" will establish the tone and genre, introduce the main character, clarify the ​world of the story​ and the status quo, indicate the ​theme​, and above all set up the dramatic ​question. That is why we will be breaking down some of the most memorable scenes and sequences found with the first 10 pages of our favorite film and TV series. We will also explore 7 types of openings and how they can launch your narrative - without falling into the trap of being cliche or derivative. As part of the webcast, you can download the complete scripts we discuss by clicking here. Once you have wrapped up the webcast, make sure to head on over to the Private Writers' Room Lounge to discuss your favorite opening scenes from film and television. And let us know why!
