Integrated / standalone
Masterclasses are a standalone training course, but they can also be taken as a complement to Immersion Screenwriting. No two subsequent rounds will cover the same material Topics are chosen from a total of +/- 50 screenwriting subjects.
I found it a great way to understand the process of writing a screenplay quickly and efficiently. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned writer you will find value in this course. Highly recommended.
This course is groundbreaking because it gets you writing. The Masterclasses are about distilling down and understanding script writing theory, but by the end it helps change the way your brain works.
Karel Segers’ Masterclass program is an exhilarating experience. I have done the Immersion course 3 times now… It helps unleash my creativity, motivate and discipline my practice of writing, and build my skills and confidence as a writer.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are these masterclasses about?
They run for an hour, with about 30-45min dedicated to a mini-lecture on a screenwriting topic. They are conducted ‘live’, like a webinar, with a limited number of students in the classroom, who can ask questions during the session.
What technology is used for the masterclasses?
We connect via Zoom, which is really easy to use. You can come in straight from your browser, or (better) you can install the free Zoom app on your computer or mobile phone. A private backup stream is available via YouTube or Facebook.
Is any prior knowledge required?
Like the Immersion Screenwriting course, everything taught here is basic screenwriting knowledge. This being said, many writers with experience have found that the masterclasses brought a new perspective on many topics.
