Rochester Writes: Basics of Writing a 10-minute Script, a two-part series

Rochester Writes: Basics of Writing a 10-minute Script, a two-part series Online

Where do good ideas come from? What fundamental components are essential for scriptwriting? Is the process the same for a short script versus a full-length? How important is conventional script formatting? These questions and more will be answered in this two-session class. Instructor Hilary Bluestein-Lyons will help fully arm you with a fool-proof process for writing a production-ready short script. This two-part series takes place via zoom.  A link will be sent to registrants the day of the class.

She received a degree in Creative Writing (poetry) from the University of Arizona and an MFA in Writing for Stage and Screen from the New Hampshire Institute of Art. Her play, Level Up, was recently produced in the Rochester Fringe Festival. Tighten Your Borscht Belt, was a semifinalist with the O’Neill Playwrights Conference and is scheduled for a full production at the Lab Theatre in Tampa, FL this June. Several of her short plays will be produced by Black Sheep Theatre in Rochester, NY as part of this year’s Pride Festival. Hilary lives in Rochester, NY where she teaches scriptwriting, cinema studies, and improv, and draws her inspiration and sense of humor from her six kids, a very fat cat, a Yorkie and eleven chickens.
