CONTENT CREATION

New platforms and formats have been driving a growing demand for content for years. Audiences are becoming niched, and unique original stories and characters are needed.

 

The ability to conceive, write, produce, and connect with an audience is more accessible than it ever has been.  Today, the actor who writes has more opportunities to define their careers than ever before.

A seven-week workshop/group that rotates through the process outlined below. 

It can benefit a project of any format (short film, web-series, long-format series, feature), from initial ideation to the final draft stage – as long as a scene (preferably between two characters) can be pulled/generated from the material.

 

Week 1: 

-Hour Intro meeting: group introductions, outlining the workshop, group cohesion, scene-writing tips, and process insights, etc.

-Participants start their first drafts this week / select a scene from their existing material they would like to work on. 

 

Week 2: 

-4-hour group meeting with out-loud cold readings of early scene-drafts. 

-Participants will hear some or all of their scenes read out loud as a means of gathering insight for their next rewrite, etc. 

-Guided peer feedback

-Participants will be able to ask questions, connect with the collective, and share with one another what their process has been like, so far.

 

Week 3: 

-Each Participant gets one, 30 min consultation with Jax, on their scene. 

 

Week 4: 

– 3-hour group meeting, wherein Zibby will lead Participants through the *‘Script Analysis’ process (highlighting the intersection between actor & writer). While Participants are working on their revised drafts, they’ll be able to source from this ‘Script Analysis’ exercise for their rewrites.

 

 Week 5: 

-4-hour group meeting with out-loud cold readings of early scene-drafts. 

-Participants will hear some or all of their scenes read out loud as a means of gathering insight for their next rewrite, etc. 

-Guided peer feedback

-Participants will be able to ask questions, connect with the collective, and share with one another what their process has been like, so far.

 

Week 6: 

-Participants rewrite/edit/finesse their scenes this week based on group read insights/feedback

-Each Participant gets one, 30 min follow-up consultation with Jax this week, on their written scene.

 

Week 7: 

-Final drafts of the scenes are turned in into Jax & Zibby. 

-Participants are assigned sides from each other’s scenes to perform in a mock casting session. 

-Participants implement the ‘Script Analysis’ process now, as the actor, for their assigned scenes.

-Participants will receive taped performances of their work.

 

Attendance Policy: This is a 6-week set class/group, if you are absent for a class or scheduled one-on-one consult, that class/consult will be considered forfeited.  You will not receive a credit.

NOTE: Zibby & Jax and ‘Content Creation’ fully respect your need for confidentiality. By working on this script or idea in class you do so with the knowledge that it is not uncommon for students and clients to have similar ideas, that parallel development may take place within the film and TV industry, and that similarities between your script/idea and any other script/idea are purely coincidental.
