Turn on your TV. Check out the multiplexes. There’s a new protagonist in town… and she’s a woman.
Time to write your female-driven screenplay or TV series!
In this Master Class, you’ll learn:
- Replace “soft” scenes with active moments.
- Create bold character choices without falling into tired stereotypes.
- Turn “girly” chatter into real-woman dialogue.
- Write a female-driven script that sells, without selling out.
You’ll be writing and brainstorming in real time, so bring your laptops and your great ideas!
