EXPO Sessions On Sale Now!!!

The first wave of individual Expo seminars have just been posted to the website. This year’s selections is our most varied so far, with several new names (and many more fresh faces still to come!) The full schedule is available on the website, but here are some highlights of the program so far and reasons you need to check them out immediately:

More Seminars By Working Writers
How did an unproduced writer end up with a big-budget action comedy released this summer? Find out with Killers writer Bob DeRosa in his exclusive talk, A KILLER Look at Breaking In. Also, Book of Eli writer Gary Whitta has two separate seminars: one on the journey from script to screen of his Denzel Washington-starring blockbuster and another on how he broke into Hollywood. If you’re a TV writer, don’t miss Erik Bork’s Finding and Writing the Story in True Stories and Creating and Pitching Ideas For Television. Bork was a writer/producer on the acclaimed HBO series Band of Brothers and From the Earth to the Moon and has received Emmy and Golden Globe awards for his work.

Before You Pitch, Learn From the Best
The Expo’s Golden Pitch festival starts on Friday afternoon, but before you pitch you need to take advantage of the myriad of classes we have available to you before you enter the room. Expo luminaries Michael Hauge, Karl Iglesias, and Victoria Wisdom all have pitch classes available and then of course you must hear from the “Pitch King,” Bob Kosberg and his Selling Your Idea to Hollywood.

The Secrets of Structure Revealed
Structure is the most important part of your script. Shoddy structure is the difference between an average and a great script. You need to know how to plot your story correctly and efficiently. Try taking Structure with James Dalessandro, the author of 1906 which was optioned by Pixar and director Brad Bird. Oftentimes, great structure really starts with a great outline, so we recommend Brian Herskowitz’s Crafting the Outline For Your Feature Film.

Get Inside Your Character’s Head
Whether its UCLA’s Richard Walter’s Three Essential Principles For Creating Worthy Characters or Michael Hauge’s The Hero’s 2 Journeys, the Expo has the seminars for you to better understand your characters and their actions. Why would they act a certain way? Why would they choose to say that? These are essential questions that you need to know about your lead if you’re going to sell your script.

* The front of the line: Expo management reserves the right to offer first pitch ticket access to a small number (no more than 40) Platinum Pass registrants, should such a class of registrations be offered.  We guarantee that this group absolutely would not exceed 40 persons -- a very small percentage of the nearly 1,000 who buy pitch tickets.
