2-WEEK WRITERS WORKSHOP

This two-week workshop—for screenwriters, novelists, playwrights,  
copywriters, and story analysts who are interested in HOW to write a  
story in serial form for television — offers a new approach by  
developing an actual TV miniseries entitled VIGAN. At the same time  
this hands-on workshop shows you how to:

•	Develop your own story for a TELE-NOVELA or TELE-SERYE by exploring  
the timetested structure of the Hero’s Journey

•	Define characters and their motivations by using personality systems  
and creating a psychological basis for their decisions and actions

•	Build the plot and subplots based on who the characters are, what  
they want and their plan of action to get their object of desire and  
learn how to structure the plot and subplots with the five major plot  
points that would ensure the story’s dramatic development and to  
sustain viewer interest and loyalty to the miniseries

•	Create a writers group with people who have undergone the same  
training and who can give you feedback in your current and future  
writing ventures.

•	Write coverage for those who are not necessarily interested in  
writing a script but would like to learn how to become a story analyst  
or script reader in their spare time. Hollywood studios and talent  
agencies are out-sourcing script coverage in the Philippines and this  
is an opportunity to learn how it is done.

  That perches in the soul,
  And sings the tune without the words,
  And never stops at all."
