Crafting Scenes… Creating Actions, An intense Scriptwriting Workshop Series.

Announcing The Florida Film Institute’s
Professional Scriptwriting Workshop

‘Crafting Scenes… Creating Actions’

Alyn Darnay

An Intensive Script Writing Workshop conducted by multi-award winning screenwriter and script doctor Alyn Darnay.

For any writer who is serious about his/her Script Writing career, the Florida Film Institute has created this professional 4 evening intensive Workshop beginning October 30th at Cineworks Digital Studios in Miami.

The Workshop is designed to enhance each participant’s ability to develop and execute a superior script while striving to improve their ability to create imaginative and emotionally layered characters, expressive and dynamic dialogue, controlled and pivotal plot twists and turns, and the all important creation of sequences that generate a life experience of their own.

Since the whole concept of Script Writing is based upon active performance of the material, renowned acting coach, Sherry Faith, (instructor of “Masters Class Acting Workshop Series” and “Kidzz-On-Camera.”) and a group of professional actors will perform scenes from participant’s scripts during the final session. Each session is interactive and allows all students to participate.

Participants from previous Workshops have gone on to win coveted awards at Film Festivals for their scripts and have had their scripts brought to the screen. If you are looking for a successful career in Scriptwriting, there is no better workshop to attend.

Here are some comments from past workshop participants:

“All the cool secrets I learn in the Workshop have advanced my writing skills 2,000 percent, it’s like finding the key to a bolted door.”
