Screenplay Development Group | StoryBoardDG.com

Dedicated to the mastery of feature film screenwriting, analysis, and development since 1981, we meet on the Fox Studios lot for analysis and in-depth discussions of current feature film screenplays.

Our goal is to schedule screenplays for discussion at the time of their film’s release so we can talk about the writing and what is on the page before people are influenced by what is heard and seen on the screen. We encourage everyone to see the film afterward to see how it turns out and how well it transitioned from page to screen, as it can help improve your own screenwriting.

Each month a different industry professional leads our discussion. These are among the best teachers, authors, coaches, and consultants working in the entertainment industry. You will have the opportunity to meet each of them individually. Over time, with membership, you will experience a variety of analytical styles and approaches to the craft of screenwriting.

Guests and prospective members should be actively involved in screenwriting and/or filmmaking and be familiar with established screenwriting principles and structure.

StoryBoardDG.com also offers screenplay development workshops for members who have written or are attached to a screenplay. In these workshops, which are scheduled on a date other than our regular meetings, participating members will analyze and discuss your screenplay and offer constructive feedback. Workshopped scripts have been optioned, produced, received distribution deals, and won awards.
