with Joey Tuccio
How do you start your script so that readers are COMPELLED to make it to the end? It’s all in the first ten pages.
One popular piece of screenwriting advice goes, “Write one great page. One perfect page. Then turn the page and do it again. Do that 90 times and you have a great screenplay.” Any time you send out a script you will have – at the most – 10 pages to impress the reader.
To really help ensure writers can stand apart of the competition, Joey Tuccio, CEO of Roadmap Writers is flying in to present this outstanding ‘Opening Pages’ Workshop. Joey will take you through the essential steps to craft those first ten pages. Getting your Act 1, Scene 1, and Page 1 right is the best way to announce “I am a professional writer.”
Using real life examples, Joey will start with a lecture on some of the immediate reasons an executive might pass on your work…and you might not even know you’re doing most of them! Remember, most execs won’t read past page 5 if they aren’t hooked from the start. These will be pointers and some of the most recurring feedback executives give up and coming writers. Learn these techniques now so you don’t have to risk these notes from potential reps or buyers.
Make those first ten pages so compelling that your readers have no option to but to dive straight into page eleven.

Character transformation is at the heart of most screenplays, but why is it so important? Is character transformation just a tried and tested Hollywood formula based on outdated hero myths?
If you have specific questions about your character’s transformation, head over to Zoom directly after Dr. Pelican’s class and ask her directly in the informal (and highly educational) Script Chat format.
