Writing Movies: What’s Your Story? A six-week workshop at The Ridgefield Playhouse with award-winning Screenwriter/Filmmaker, Katie Torpey.

6 Weeks: Thursdays 7:30pm – 9:30pm from April 12, 2018 – May 24, 2018 (no class on May 3rd)

In this 6-week screenwriting workshop, you will discover and flesh out a movie idea that you are deeply connected to. This course focuses on Katie’s unique method on how to figure out one of your personal stories by looking at your life and experiences and putting the pieces of the story puzzle together. You will learn the fundamentals of storytelling, screenplay structure and character development. You will turn your newfound story idea into a well-mapped out movie. This workshop is about discovering the writer within you and giving you the confidence to write a story you are meant to tell.
