I never went to film school. I didn't even major in writing at Cornell. But I have managed to learn about the screenwriting industry and craft at a much cheaper price point than a MFA, right from my own home. Here's how you can too.
If you're working on a TV pilot, or just have an idea you think would make a great show, don't miss the chance to flush it out with Screenwriting University's TV PILOT BOOT CAMP the weekend of October 25th to 27th. With less feature films being made and more TV stations showcasing incredible content, there has never been a better time for writers to break into the TV industry!
