Sept. 19 & 20: Hollywood Producers, Writers, Directors – IronMan 3, Shutter Island, Star Trek, Simpsons (INFOLIST)
On-site registration available in Santa Monica!! Meet the top writers and get a pitching coaching session! Join us after the Screenwriting Expo for this unique sampling of Sherwood Oaks’ two most popular courses- our Producers course, and an opportunity to gain insight from top writers and directors.
For 30 years, Sherwood Oaks been providing the best professionals.
On Day One, students will experience tremendous insight where they can learn from the TOP WRITERS in Hollywood. Avoid the crowds and get the rare opportunity to interact with writers who
wrote some of the biggest films in the world. As many former students have stated, this session you will learn more in one day then you may learn in an entire semester at a film school. Learn from the pros in the business provide their heartful advice.
On Day Two, students will participate in a Panel Discussion with top Hollywood Directors and producers (check out our producer class), both from large companies and independents, who are much more open to new writers and therefore in a much better position to launch a new writer’s career (for more info on why this is, see our Backdoor to Hollywood course description.) We work hard to make sure we present guests who are not only at the top of their game but who are genuinely interested in meeting new writers! Learn from the top directors, many of who started as writers.
The best part is, that in every Sherwood Oaks course, each student is invited to share their one-sheet with each guest – and the Post-Expo Symposium is no exception to that. So, be sure to bring plenty of copies!
