This year's festival-goers may remember Michael Lucker as host of the script readings from the screenwriting competition and as part of the Creative Conference panel "How to Structure Your Screenplay," which touched on the fundamentals of basic screenplay structure. A one-time assistant to Steven Spielberg, Lucker has written more than twenty feature screenplays for studios such as Paramount, Disney, DreamWorks, Fox, and Universal (including "Vampire in Brooklyn," "Home on the Range," and the Academy Award-nominated "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron"). He is offering a unique opportunity to share his expertise with local writers by hosting a session of his renowned Screenwriter School on May 24th and 25th.
Over the course of two seven-hour days, aspiring writers will be guided from the germ of an idea to the final pitch, learning everything they need to know about crafting a successful screenplay.
A lot of screenwriting teachers claim to teach what you need to make it in the movie biz— but how many of them have actually done it? At Screenwriter School, Michael will teach you how to go from first idea to first sale—the way only an experienced screenwriter can do it.
