Writers once dreamed of writing novels. Now screenplays top the dream list. In this fast-moving and entertaining seminar, two top teachers explain the sometimes ungentle art of writing salable movie and television scripts ...

Richard Walter praises commercial film and TV for catering to its audience

Popularity, he says, comes directly from The Story

"Everything is important," he says, "but none of it means anything outside the context of The Story"

His expert advice on structure lie through your teeth, integrate and think beginnings, middles and ends will help your screenplay take a quantum leap in the direction of success

As head of UCLA's Film & TV School, Richard Walter helped mould the careers of writers responsible for Stand and Deliver, Robocop, River's Edge, Repo Man and episodes of L.A. Law, Thirtysomething and Miami Vice

He himself writes for film and TV and is a longtime member of the Writers Guild of America. He has helped hundreds of writers become successful professionals

Emmy winner William Froug presents practical, write-from-the-gut advice that resounds with experience and integrity

What you feel is what counts," says Froug. He advises how to -

Make the dialogue lean
Get intimate with your characters
Keep the dramatic tension in your script
Reveal information only when it has impact
Use the techniques of foreshadowing and surprise
Put aside formulas and get your best script down on paper
