Does Your Screenwriting Have Dynamic Structure?
The late Dan O’Bannon gave us some of the greatest genre films of all time, including ALIEN, TOTAL RECALL and RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. O’Bannon wrote these masterworks using a self-created system he called ‘dynamic structure.’ Award-winning screenwriter Matt R. Lohr, co-author of Dan’s posthumously published book DAN O’BANNON’S GUIDE TO SCREENPLAY STRUCTURE, presents an inside look at the system Dan used in his own work, along with methods for applying these ideas to your own scripts and a hands-on analysis of a major contemporary film using Dan’s system.
This is a “must attend” workshop for:
- any writer serious about selling screenplays in Hollywood
- producers who want to know how to quickly identify a sellable script
- actors who want insight on character development
“Dan O’Bannon’s Guide to Screenplay Structure” is part of the Indie U Film Curricula, presented by the nonprofit Downtown Film Festival L.A. Classes are held at Kleverdog Academie, conveniently located in the heart of Chinatown in downtown L.A., two blocks from the 110 freeway and from the Metro Gold Line. Hurry, seating is strictly limited, and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. SIGN UP HERE!
