We've been discussing the indie hit CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER for many months now only to discover this week that co-writer and co-star Will McCormack is a Writers Boot Camp alumnus. Congrats to Will for his work on an entertaining and conceitful project, as well as for his comedic acting!
While no substitute for coursework and script completion, our alumni and creative community have access to many different educational topics through our forums with industry luminaries, business leaders and successful Writers Boot Camp alumni. Check out photos of recent events moderated by founder Jeffrey Gordon.
Writers Boot Camp's headquarters, based in Santa Monica at the Bergamot Station Arts Center, was built to bring our community together. It's a great alternative to traditional office space or writing at home in your pajamas. For eligibility, email email@example.com.
Actors Annex events support actors in our community, who tend to do well in our course work due to the parallel process between acting and writing, and their extensive script reading experience. (Pictured: WBC alum/director Liz Allen and Dating Rules stars Alison Becker and Shiri Appleby.
Professional Membership takes you through four scripts in two years and includes an online archive of dozens of industry speaker events. (Pictured: Gary Marks, Dale Launer, Norman Aladjem, Jeffrey Gordon, Carl Bressler, Tadji Akhavan.)
Writers Boot Camp alumni had more than 20 movies made or released in 2011! Most of these didn't happen overnight but they all prove the value of investing in your professional education.
Since 1989, Writers Boot Camp has launched major writing careers at the highest levels of the film and television business through intensive screenwriting classes, coursework, membership benefits and support to writers. Our alumni have hundreds of major writing credits and thousands of hours of produced television and web series, including A-List writers, filmmakers, actors, executives, and Emmy, Tony, WGA, Webby and Academy Award winners.
If you have 10 hours per week to write, please complete a career survey to schedule a free creative session to determine your best script idea and your eligibility for coursework. Work Study candidates can save up to 50% on Professional Membership.
