PILOT IN A MONTH with Madalyn Baldanzi

In this class, you will learn how to
write an original half-hour comedy pilot, and get it done in just one
month!  From formulating the idea, to creating stories, to outlining,
you will learn structure and style.  By the end of the class you will
have a thirty to thirty-five page pilot.  Keeping up with the writing
assignments is critical for this class, especially in the later
sessions.  There will also be some light required reading and watching.

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

There is work outside of class, preparing sketches for
presentation in every class and viewing sketch videos. This online
course uses Google Classroom and Google Meet programs to conduct live sessions with your instructor and fellow students.
