"Swiss Army Writer: Diversification through Screenwriting" with Daniel Wells

Writers choose the roughest of the creative paths. With over a million books published on Amazon, the rules are changing across all writing disciplines. The landscape of television and film is evolving rapidly as well. As business is moving from theaters to streaming services, and the technology surrounding the film industry evolves, the demand for high-concept films and television series is rising, and audiences take their conversation about their favorite films/series to social media.

In this workshop, Swiss Army Writer: Diversification through Screenwriting, Daniel Wells will discuss the business of screenwriting, screenplay format, and the similarities/differences between writing prose and writing for the screen.
