Get Inspired! Bring Your Scripts to Life Through Great Ideas and Powerful Storytelling
May 18, 2020 - May 22, 2020
Workshop Fee: $1195 (Spring Session)
Class Size: 14 (Max)
Created for writers and producers working in corporate and government communications, this Workshop gives you the tools and inspiration you need to engage your audience and produce results that make you more valuable to your organization.
This workshop focuses on the essential of good video scripting, including the importance of the central idea and how to use tone, language and visuals to bring relevance, a unique story line, and a human element to all your productions.
The curriculum is dynamic and based upon the class’s own specific needs and experiences. We’ll cover the “Four Truths” of good storytelling, as well as the fundamentals – and a host of tips and techniques – that go into a good corporate video script. Collaborating with your peers, you’ll work on a project for local client, honing your presentation skills, developing the big idea and then pitching it in a real-world situation. The primary focus will be on making your message relevant to your audience, then tapping into your creative voice to bringing it to life.
Take your thinking to a whole new level. You’re encouraged to bring your work in progress and/or project ideas to share with instructors and the class.
