Advanced TV Spec Lab

Instructor: Michael Perri

In this 2 week prep + 4-week intensive lab, writers can expect step by step, detailed feedback from the instructor on Script Anatomy development tools, outline and draft.

Aside from helping you develop and write your script in 4 weeks (with breaks in between for outline and draft), this unique curriculum provides invaluable preparation for your first staffing job. Writers are also expected to actively participate: read materials, pitch ideas, give notes and work together as a room to help fellow writers in the story breaking process each week. In a professional writers room, you must participate to keep your job — working this muscle will benefit you.

Prerequisite: Televisionary Writers Workshop or comparable academic equivalent. Writers should have written at least 2 scripts. This class is not for absolute beginners.

Limit: 8 writers

When: 2 weeks of Prep (help picking concept if needed, and then concept one sheet & story spine sheet tool assignments) + 4 Saturdays March 21st, March 28th, April 11th, May 2nd  from 1 pm – 4 pm (** No Class April 4 (Easter Weekend),  April 19th, or April 26th — 2 weeks off in between class to writer your killer outline and draft) 

Where: Blank Spaces, 5405 Wilshire Blvd, LA 90036

Cost: $595.00

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR 

Michael Perri is a dramatic writer who was born Emmanuel Pedro, until his adoptive parents changed his name when he was ten. Growing up in Chicago’s foster care system, he wrote plays and asked (okay forced) the other kids to act them out.  Before moving to LA to write full time, he traveled the world as a technology and cyber-security consultant. Recently, Perri was awarded a coveted spot in NBC’s Writers on the Verge Program. Prior to that, he was a finalist in the Disney | ABC Television Writing program and a participant in theNational Hispanic Media Coalition’s Television Writers Fellowship sponsored by ABC Creative Development and NBC’s Talent Diversity initiatives. In 2012, Perri also made Tracking-Board.com’s Young and Hungry List. He attributes his success to the same resolve and optimistic attitude he displayed as a child in foster care.

Perri’s characters often reflect his own upbeat and positive attitude, persevering to overcome their obstacles no matter the odds. As a nice Catholic boy, his dream was always to marry a sweet Jewish girl and join the enormous family she puts up with.  Mike’s dream came true and he looks forward to raising his children to be guilt-free ‘Cashews’ one day.

He currently is a staff writer on NBC TV’s CIA Conspiracy Series “State of Affairs,” starring Katherine Heigl and Alfre Woodard.

ABOUT Script Anatomy 

Have a great idea for a TV show? Or a rough outline for a spec? Maybe you’ve finished a draft of that pilot and need feedback for your rewrite. Wherever you are, Script Anatomy can help. Our one-on-one consultations are tailored to meet your specific needs, whether you’re still honing your concept or you’re further along in the process. While consults allow you to choose how much feedback you need every step of the way, Script Anatomy classes walk you through a specific weekly syllabus in a small, supportive group of writers. Classes vary in curriculum; please see our “Classes” page for more information.

With nearly 10 years of teaching under my belt, I’ve worked with writers looking to sell projects, gain acceptance into a fellowship program or land a staffing job — while some simply want to explore the craft and develop their voice. Regardless of what your goals are, I want you to come away from our work together with a clearer vision of your project and a deeper understanding of how to execute that vision. I want you to feel reinvigorated, not just on your current project, but on every single one afterward. I want you to fill your toolbox with exactly what you need to build your writing dreams into reality.

Script Anatomy TV & Feature class alums and private clients have sold shows, features, and webisodes, and been staffed on several major networks, including: Showtime, BBC Worldwide, NBC, ABC, ABC Family, USA, Sony, The Montecito Picture Company, Warner Brothers, HBO Films, Walt Disney and more. SA writers have been signed with CAA, ICM, UTA, APA, Paradigm, Gersh, The Gotham Group, Circle of Confusion, Echo Lake Entertainment, Chemical Imbalance, Art/Work Entertainment, Rain Management. Our alums have also made the semi-final and finalist round or won coveted spots on several Network Writing Program Fellowships and contests, including: ABC Disney Fellowship, NBC Writers On the Verge, CBS Writers Fellowship, Fox Diversity, CAPE (Coalition of Asian Pacific Entertainment, PGA Diversity Workshop, NHMC (National Hispanic Media Coalition), Nickelodeon Fellowship, Nicholl Fellowship in Writing, Final Draft’s Big Break, Scriptapalooza, Page Screenwriting Contest and more.

Advanced TV Pilot Lab

This 6-week intensive lab is limited to 8 writers and is run like a professional writers room. Every writer is expected to actively participate: read materials, pitch ideas, give notes, and work together as a room to help fellow writers in the story breaking process each week.This fast paced class requires that each writer devote outside class time to writing, homework and, at certain points along the process, reading other classmates’ material to give feedback. In a professional writers room, you must participate if you want to keep your job. Working this muscle will benefit you.

Aside from helping you develop, outline, and write your script in 6 weeks, this unique curriculum provides invaluable preparation for your first staffing job.

 

 

About:

logo

If you’ve Googled “TV & screenwriting classes” you know that there are a bewildering number of workshops and courses out there, a lot of them making similar promises.

Script Anatomy is different. It’s the only system designed and taught by a working television writer (me). It’s television-specific. And we teach practical tools that help writers develop their craft so that they can sustain a successful writing career. 

It’s also not for everyone. If you write as a hobby or prefer a gentle pace, this may not be for you. I created Script Anatomy for people who are serious about breaking into the industry. This is the most rigorous and practical program of its kind.

As a working WGA writer, I know what it takes to get ahead. I got my break through Fox Writer’s Initiative and NBC’s Writers on the Verge fellowship, and I have worked on several hit TV shows since, most recently on NBC’s The Night Shift. The purpose of Script Anatomy is to help writers advance the way I did. And that means equipping them for the current industry environment.

For instance – here, at Script Anatomy, we treat all our writers as dedicated emerging professionals. So we don’t sugar coat, we don’t blow smoke. Whether in consults or classes, our instructors will always give you an honest evaluation of your project. We expect hard work. Our writers come ready to roll up their sleeves and apply the tools we teach.

Throughout the year, we hold regular panel discussions with industry professionals – colleagues of mine, special guests, and Script Anatomy alumni who have graduated from our program and are working in the industry. In this business, contacts are critical and career paths are like snowflakes — no two are identical. So we work hard to provide a wide variety of learning opportunities that will help all of our students stand out from the pack. 

So if you’re serious about your writing goals, ready to improve your craft, and willing to do the work, then you’ve come to the right place. We look forward to working with you.
