Pilot Class: Now's The Time!

If you have a pilot script sitting around in whatever state and want good notes on it, this is for you. In this abridged pilot class, we will be learning what makes a good pilot through reading finished drafts. Each student will receive notes on their pilot script and on a subsequent revision. The notes will be universalized so that we learn the hallmarks that any pilot script should have. Students should start the class with a finished draft of a pilot script -- it doesn't have to be perfect, just has to be a finished draft. 

Students should have access to a computer and stable, robust internet access, webcam & microphone. 

This online course uses Google Classroom and Google Meet programs to conduct live sessions with your instructor and fellow students.
