BACK!!  By popular demand, Hollywood legend Pilar Alessandra returns to deliver this detailed and instructive session on how to avoid the cliché and write characters that actresses will line up to play.

And it’s in the air too, the rise of the feminine voice in creativity has never been louder or impassioned, not just because of a cultural shift, but because audiences are demonstrably CHOOSING these stories.

In this seminar you will learn how to:

  • Replace “soft” scenes with active moments.
  • Create bold character choices without falling into tired stereotypes.
  • Turn girly chatter into real-woman dialogue.
  • Write a female-driven screenplay that hangs with the big boys!

Remember, the savvy producers, commissioners and financiers are aware of this trend and writing The Female-Driven Screenplay could for the first time in industry history, cause your work to rise to the top of the script pile for readers.

This session was standing room only last year so make sure to get there early!
