Welcome to the World of Screenwriting!

There's nothing quite like a great film. The complexity of the characters, the details of the worlds they inhabit, and the stories they allow us to experience create lifelong memories. What a sublime way to spend a couple of hours!

Of course, long before the film starts rolling, the story takes shape on the screenwriter's page.

If you're new to the world of screenwriting, then you may not have given the screenwriter's role much thought. If you're an aspiring or active screenwriter, then you're well aware of how crucial it is.

Whether you're a novice or a budding professional, you're sure to enjoy The Artful Space's upcoming workshop, Screenwriting: Writing a Feature Film.

In it, instructor Herbert Beigel will guide students as they each write a complete feature film. He'll also conduct workshops of students’ drafts in progress and offer lectures in scene structure, dialogue, plot, character development, story, and theme. Following the workshop, the instructor will make himself available for further consultation and editing.
