He’s written for all the big boys, Disney, Fox, Sony, and Nickelodeon and even created the a screenplay “Jaguar” that would eventually become “The Lion King” while working on a three-picture deal at Disney Feature Animation.

Chris will teach you about story structure, outlining, the intersection of character and conflict, the difference between plot and story, formatting, and scene writing. He’ll also share his secrets for breaking into the business and staying there and how to avoid the rookie mistakes that could end your career. By the end of the class, you’ll understand the fundamentals of screenwriting craft, honed your project’s premise, characters, and even written a beat sheet.
