Registration is now open for MIFF and BTG Productions' Intensive Screenwriting Lab, to be held on November 14-15 at the Miami Science Museum. Like most screenwriting/filmmaking workshops it ain't cheap at $310 for the two-day course.

According to the press release, here's what you'll get for your hard-earned cash:

The two-day Screenwriting Lab, the second round in a series of workshops, will provide participants with critical insights into the various elements of the screenwriting craft: screenplay format, developing the story, theme, character, plot, synopsis, treatment, scene list, dialogue, and three-act structure.  In a compact weekend format, the Screenwriting Lab will instruct aspiring filmmakers on the fundamentals of producing content on film or digital technology. What makes these workshops truly exceptional is the quality and caliber of their award winning instructors, all of whom are produced screenwriters with Hollywood credits.

The returning lecturer is award-winning WGA screenwriter, producer, and director Tom Musca.  Credits include Stand and Deliver (Academy nomination for best actor), Tortilla Soup, and Gotta Kick It Up! Tom was named Moseley Fellow at Pomona College in 2006. He was head of the Screenwriting Faculty at the New Mexico Filmmakers Intensive, a post-graduate in the above-the-line film-training program for writers, producers, directors, and editors at the College of Santa Fe in New Mexico. He also conducts MPAA workshops around the world on Screenwriting and Producing. Mr. Musca has several features in development.  He holds an M.F.A. in Screenwriting from UCLA film school.

Space is limited to 15 participants. Tuition is $295 plus a $15.00 processing and materials fee. A $75.00 deposit is required to reserve a spot. Full payment is due a week before the start of the workshop. Checks, cashier checks or money orders are accepted. Deadline to register is November 7th. To register, email btgproductionsinc@gmail.com.  For more information, contact BTG at 305/227-2750.
