  • Harvardwood Presents: Start Your Script the Right Way with Corey Mandell

    Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 04:00 PM - PDT · $10.00 USD

    In order to have success in the current marketplace, you need to do three things:

    Hook the reader with your characters.
    Hook the reader with your story.
    Hook the reader with your premise.

    The best writers are able to nail all three of those objectives in their first scene.

    Learn a step-by-step process for designing and executing your opening in a way that can truly excite a reader and make them absolutely want to keep reading.

    These are the exact same techniques used in the openings of such projects as Fleabag, Game of Thrones, Orange Is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Atlanta, Stranger Things, 30 Rock, Seinfeld, Succession, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, Moonlight, Lady Bird, Parasite and countless others.

    Most scripts are rejected after the first scene. Don't let that happen to you.

    Join Corey at 4pm PST on April 22nd, 2021. Tickets below!
