Taught by Rona Edwards & Monika Skerbelis authors of the critically acclaimed book, "I Liked It, Didn't Love It: Screenplay Development from the Inside Out" now in 2nd Edition.


Rona and Monika's knowledge and instruction improved my story development skills and opened opportunities that I otherwise would not have had the privilege to benefit from.

We work in Hollywood every day. And today’s world of feature films is more complex than ever. In this course, we’ll walk you through the development steps. We’ll share what really happens when you submit your screenplay or material. You’ll learn about the players at the studios, production companies and agencies. We’ll teach you the importance of loglines, coverage, development notes, and talent lists. At the end of the course you'll have the resources you’ll need to become a successful development executive, producer, writer or director.

"Screenplay Development from the Inside Out" will begin its online workshop on June 30. The cost for this 5-week workshop is $300 and will cover such topics as:

The steps a screenplay or novel goes through when it is submitted to a studio or production company

Who the players are that sell, submit and greenlight your material
