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.
