Screenwriting Intensive w/ Matthew McDuffie

I'm glad to pass along info on my favorite local screenwriting teach, Matt McDuffie -- who's offering another set of Screenwriting Intensives. More info below:


Matthew McDuffie, an instructor in the Dramatic Writing Program at the University of New Mexico, and a professional screenwriter who has written for HBO, Showtime, Warner Brothers, and the producers of ER, Capote, and Six Feet Under, will lead a series of intimate one-day workshops for filmmakers and storytellers who are determined to create stronger stories, characters, and commercially viable screenplays.

Classes are scheduled for July 18th and July 25th, and will cover the foundations – the mechanics of plot, then quickly move on to the development of each participant’s storyline. Individuals are encouraged to bring in ideas, or existing work, the goal being to have a complete outline by the end of the day.

The workshops will be held at KNME Studios in Albuquerque from 9 AM to 4 PM. The cost is $125. Call (505) 385-1323 or write for more information and reservations. A $25 deposit is required, as lunch will be served on site.

"Matthew is a passionate storyteller. He lives for it. He understands that the problem solving and puzzle-making of good story is to serve emotion and character, and ultimately the audience. In this age of reality TV and internet immersion, Matthew has not forgotten that entertainment is an art form."

--- Bonnie Curtis – Producer of Saving Private Ryan and Minority Report
