Screenwriting Workshop

Advanced Scene Analysis:
The Nitty-Gritty Analysis of Scenes

This Sunday: April 4th, 6–9pm EST

“You probably know a scene when you see one, but let’s jump into the nitty-gritty to augment your intuitive understanding.”

We will go through entire scenes, beginning to end, and break them down at a molecular level. Films we study include Good will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and Dark Knight. Examining scenes from these classic and contemporary films will improve your craft on the spot.

Advanced Scene Analysis Class: $59 USD

More workshops coming this summer!

More Testimonials from Jim’s Former Students

Jim Mercurio is a whirlwind of energy and enthusiasm, a bracing blast of insight into how to make every scene, every line of dialogue, every beat and every blade of grass serve your story.

Seeing a movie — or better yet, your own script — through Jim’s eyes is like playing a round of golf with Arnold Palmer. Moves you never imagined are revealed, and techniques you thought you knew cold are plumbed to greater depths.

To truly appreciate Jim’s enthusiasm and generosity you must experience it firsthand, which I wholeheartedly recommend.

Immerse yourself and emerge a transformed writer.

John Dummer

Jim’s approach is not dogmatic … There’s plenty of room for questions, differing points of view and input from attendees … (it’s) a thought-provoking, dynamic workshop guaranteed to push your creative boundaries.
