Derek Stuckert

Growing up the tall kid with no athletic ability, Derek quickly embraced his love of the arts and never looked back. He is a Texas native and a graduate of the American Film Institute where he received an M.F.A in Screenwriting. His Hollywood journey has taken him from writing independent films, to developing TV pitches, reading for notable screenplay contests, while still finding time to teach film theory and screenwriting to the next generation of young artists. Most recently, he was selected as part of Imagine Entertainment's content accelerator where he is developing and writing an original TV project. Derek is a proud University of Miami graduate as well as the recipient of an M.F.A. in Screenwriting from the American Film Institute.

Description

While the writing room may look different... the collaborative and engaging roundtable experience is the same. From writing roundtables, to collaborative online writing projects, to peer-led critiques, and professional instruction from top level instructors, SOCAPA's Screenwriting Online continues to emphasize the importance of building relationships with other young artists and facilitating creative collaboration.


Students will have the option of developing two short screenplays (4-8 pages each), one longer screenplay (10-12 pages), or the first act of a feature-length screenplay. The two week screenwriting intensive provides students with the time, structure, feedback, and theory to hone their writing skills with a particular focus on story and character development. Students spend time workshopping and critiquing their own and each others's work, as well as analyzing films to discover what works and what doesn't.

Recommended Gear - Home Writer's Room

Pen and Paper
From chisels and stone-tablets, to quill pens and papyrus, typewriters, to word processors... every writer's room starts with a writing tool. Here at SOCAPA, we suggest you start with a pen and paper.

Perfect for taking notes, quickly jotting down new ideas, or doodling during writer's block, a pen and paper is an endless sandbox for your imagination. Get a head start on camp and start brainstorming characters and stories today.
WriterDuet
Hollywood scripts conform to a stringent writing format. Software that automatically formats your scripts will make you a faster writer and your scripts more professional.

WriterDuet is one of the very best free screenwriting software options. WriterDuet allows real-time collaborative work in which you and your partner or teacher can immediately see edits. While the free version only allows three scripts, there are no page limits, time limits or export/import quotas.
