How To Write & Sell A Film Script

Did you know that Georgia is the 3rd largest producer of films in the country?

But the part that’s missing is the writers rooms?

Back by popular demand, film maker Ty Manns, named one of the best presenters at the 2015 and 2016 Chattahoochee Valley Writers Conferences, will show you:

  • How to take your idea from concept to finished product
  • What you need to know BEFORE you start writing
  • How to develop your story and your characters
  • What producers look for in a script
  • How to sell your masterpiece  

With a film career that started under the mentorship of Rick Bieber, then president of HBO pictures, Terrence “Ty” Manns specializes in screen writing, directing, and producing. His film credits include A Question of Faith (shown in nationwide theaters in September, 2017 and now available on Red Box & Netflix); The Turning Point (to be released in October, 2018), The Wish, The 5th Quarter, and White Water.

Ty Manns knows how to write a screenplay, pitch it, get it financed, direct the film, and get it produced.
