THE SHAPE OF WATER: Screenplay Analysis & In-depth Screenwriting Discussion

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Meet on the Fox Studios backlot on January 8th for an in-depth analysis and discussion of the screenplay THE SHAPE OF WATER.

Logline: A mute woman takes a janitorial job at a secret government laboratory where she becomes emotionally attached to a mysterious amphibious humanoid creature being held there in captivity.

This unique take on Creature From the Black Lagoon was written by Oscar nominee Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) and Vanessa Taylor (Game of Thrones). The film, starring Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, Michael Shannon, and Octavia Spencer, won the Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival and is nominated for seven Golden Globe awards including Best Picture and Best Screenplay!

BILL LUNDY will provide in-depth script analysis and lead our discussion. A graduate of USC Film School, Bill has written two highly-rated original films for SyFy, Silent Warnings and Alien Siege, sold stories to Star Trek: Voyager, and optioned several sci-fi, fantasy, and horror projects. From 1997 to 2004 he served as Chairman of the non-profit Scriptwriters Network. A top script consultant and teacher known as “The Log Line Doctor,” he’s done seminars for Screenwriting Expo, Sherwood Oaks College, Newport Beach Film Festival, Scriptwriters Showcase, Flash Forward, and The Writers Store and contributed to such books as Q&A: The Working Screenwriter by Jim Vines and Now Write! Screenwriting, and his essays and liner notes can be found on award-winning DVD special editions for such films as The Matrix, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, and Minority Report.

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.
