2019 Storywise 10-Week TV Teleseminar – LEVEL 3 & SPECIAL OFFERS

by on Nov.18, 2018, under events, Featured, Personal tips

STORYWISE 10-week TV WRITING TELESEMINAR AND TRAINING SERIES

Classes begin on Tuesday March 5th at 7:00 pm ONLINE and go through May 14, 2019

Want to learn all of the things that I teach in Writers on the Verge at NBC? Check out my Storywise 10-Week Teleseminar that includes an eight-module story instruction training series called, “How To Write A TV Pilot That Sells: Moving Forward.”

This is a 10-week program designed to help you write a high-quality TV pilot AND spec script. In 10-weeks, I will teach you how to learn to write at a level that will help lead your script to a sale, get staffed on a show, place in a writing competition or get into one of the various writing programs. This course is everything that I teach in Writers on the Verge and more.

Last year we had over 100 writer participants from all over the world. You will not only learn all of the story tools that you need to succeed, but you will also gain the opportunity to be in a private community of writers. This community is a very valuable resource. You all will have a chance to learn from one another via networking, to exchange scripts and possibly starting your own writer groups.

I’ve seen the success from this course first-hand. Many of the writers who have taken this 10-week course have gone on to sell pilots, get staffed on TV shows and get into several of the prestigious writing programs. Fifty-Two of my writers have sold pilots… and 6 of them have gone to series.

The story instruction is pre-recorded. You will receive this before the course begins in March.

In March, each call is approximately 2 – 2 ½ hours in length. On each call, we will go over the notes for the 4 writers participating at Level #3. You will have an opportunity to read their scripts and make your own notes each week. You will also get to share your notes with those writers directly. This is what we do in Writers on the Verge. It is a way to prepare you for being in the Writers’ Room. Then, I will give five people the opportunity to sign up each week will get an opportunity to pitch to a guest speaker. We all learn from hearing others pitch. This part of the program was designed to help you learn from the pitching style of others as well as give you the opportunity to pitch yourself. It’s an invaluable tool. Every level will have an opportunity to sign up for this.

 

In January, I will put up the offers for Levels 1, 2 & 4.

I currently have a SPECIAL OFFER going for the month of January for levels 1, 2, and 4.

Here is the LINK for the 4 FREE Training Videos available through 12/4/18 as well.

At Level 1, you get to participate in all 10 classes. You will receive a recording of the classes. You will have an opportunity to sign up to pitch to my weekly guest speakers.

You have up to a year after the course is finished to turn this in.

LEVEL 2

At Level 2, you get to participate in all 10 classes. You will receive a recording of the classes. You will have an opportunity to sign up to pitch to my weekly guest speakers.

You will have an opportunity to sign up to pitch to my weekly guest speakers. You get to be part of a private Facebook community.

For the first time, I am going to offer you the option of not writing a TV spec. You can either write one TV pilot during the 10 weeks or, you can write two TV pilots during the ten weeks. There will also be an option to do it for five weeks instead of ten weeks. This will be offered to the finalists.

There are only FOUR SLOTS for this level: two for drama and two for comedy. This could change depending on the strength of the submissions. If you are interested in applying, you will need to submit ten pages of a script. The submission deadline is 1/31/19. I will select four submissions out of all of the submissions and announce these slots in February. The rate for Level 3 is $3,000.00.

ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR LEVEL 3 STARTING JANUARY 1 – 31, 2019. I will announce in mid-February. Please email your 10 page submissions to me at jen@jengrisanti.com

ASSIGNMENTS

Level #3 writing assignments will be due the Saturday before each class. Everyone at each level will receive a copy of the assignments turned in by the Level #3 writers so that they may follow along as well as provide notes directly to the Level#3 writer.

 

Levels #1 and #2, you will do the assignments on your own. No direct feedback is provided for Level 1. Level 2 gets feedback during the pilot consult. I do highly recommend that you use the Facebook community of writers to exchange scripts so that you can receive weekly feedback.

MORE INFORMATION:

This month’s Friday Night Social is being held at The District By Hannah AnPlease join Jennifer GrisantiFinal Draft and The Scriptwriters Network at this location for this month’s Friday Night Social “Networking” event. 

Intricately handcrafted to transport guests into Vietnam’s sensational past, The District by Hannah An is unlike any Vietnamese restaurant in the U.S. Before entering, guests are awestruck from the street by the Hoi An room, where Edison lights emit a welcoming glow reminiscent of the bustling “Lantern Town.” Let’s step inside.

What could easily couple as a museum, Hannah An’s newest creation delivers an authentic Vietnamese experience. From the manor home’s century-old doors to its patinated mirrors, no detail has been overlooked. But the design is just one part of her full orchestra.

Simply stated, Hannah has created an environment that thrives on harmony. The sounds of laughter enhance the room’s energy, which bolsters the mood in the kitchen, where food is prepared and dished with love, which is enjoyed by those same jovial guests. Repeat. Everything is part of and a distinct reflection of everything.

What: Screenplay Writing for Television and Film

Where: The Fairmont Orchid Hotel, Kohala Coast, Big Island of Hawaii

When: Saturday, May 26 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm

Who: Jennifer Grisanti is one of the leading consultants, mentors, coaches, and instructors in the field of screenplay writing and development for television and film. She has a story system that has led 52 of her clients to sell their pilots. Six of them went to series. Jen was a studio executive for 12 years at Spelling Television Inc. and CBS/Paramount. She staffed over 15 primetime shows in her career. Aaron Spelling was her mentor. She is also the writing instructor for Writers on the Verge at NBC, a blogger for The Huffington Post, the author of three books—her latest is Change Your Story: Change Your Life: A Path to Your Success–, and an international speaker who has participated in writing conferences, retreats, seminars, film festivals, and writing expos around the world.In this day long workshop, Jen will share the techniques, insights, and dynamics of her Story System, an approach that has led so many writers to success in the television and film arenas. Discussions will center on the elements of strong and compelling story structure and development, writing a script that sells, writing a TV pilot script or screenplay that can’t be ignored, writing memorable characters and character dynamics, adding truth to your fiction, mastering the set up of your story through structure, setting up a season one arc, and Jen will offer plenty of time for career advice, insights into how and what Hollywood is looking for these days and how it works, and general Q&A from participants.

Why: This workshop is a must for those looking to develop their craft and skill in professional areas of screenplay writing for
television and film, those looking to “polish” their skills in these areas, or for those looking to better understand the craft of writing for film and television and how these skill sets relate to the overall production process.
