DRAMEDIES: the most sought after projects internationally.

In this hands-on, experiential workshop you will learn the creative, innovative, and dramaturgical skills you need to create original dramedy films and TV series.

Utilizing a series of improvisational, storytelling, and creativity exercises, you will create a concept for a new dramedy film or TV series. By working in a collaborative writers room environment, you will have the opportunity to develop a synopsis that captures the passion and commercial potential of your project.

Day One: Generate the character webs and themes
Day Two: Developing the relationship and plot arcs through Story Constellations
Day Three: Complete your Synopsis via Visioning, pitching, writer’s room and instructor feedback

“Working with Tom is worth it’s weight in gold!”
- Paul Saltzman, filmmaker, Prom Night in Mississippi, with Morgan Freeman

You will leave this three-day workshop with the knowledge of how to create and develop successful dramedies, along with potential film and television projects.

TOM SCHLESINGER writes and consults on successful film and television projects internationally. He teaches storytelling workshops at Pixar Animations Studios, Lucasfilm, the Red Bull Media House, the International Film School, the American Film Institute, the DGA and the WGA. He is currently under contract with Sunrise Films in Toronto to write two feature film dramedies.
