Pilot Writing


In this course, you will take an idea from a
pitch all the way to a polished draft, getting feedback at each step as
you go through this tough but really rewarding process. We'll talk
about elements of a strong pilot concept, character creation, outline
structure, and how to write dialogue that sounds like it comes from a
human. And we'll do it in a supportive workshop environment where you'll
be giving feedback on other projects as you work on your own. 

This class will break down the pilot writing process into easily achieved weekly goals. You will leave with a completed draft that you can build on and use as a sample. If writing a pilot feels overwhelming, this is the class for you.




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.
