FAQs

 Screenwriting Kids

What is the age range for this course?

We generally recommend ages eleven to seventeen. Kids should have a strong reading and writing aptitude.  The material gradually becomes more advanced and the concepts may be difficult for kids under the age of ten.  This course is best suited for kids from 6th to 12th Grade.

Can teens take this course?

The course material is advanced enough for teenagers. They will definitely not feel like they are being taught baby material. We have had students as old as 18 successfully complete the course.

How do students contact Debbie?

Students will correspond with Debbie through the course platform. Parents and students are always welcome to submit any questions or concerns.

How soon will students complete a script?

This all depends on the student and their motivation to complete the course. They have one year from their enrollment date where they have access to Debbie for questions and assessments. Students are expected to do their part to complete all of the course material and submit their finished script in time for script notes.

How many scripts can students submit?

This depends on the course plan. Students who sign up for the STANDARD do not have the option to submit their script for script notes.  Students who sign up for the PREMIUM course can submit the first draft of one screenplay written for a short film (10 to 20) pages.

How long does it take to finish the course?

Again, this all depends on the student. There is a lot of material so it is not a course to rush through but with consistent effort, students are able to complete this course and submit their final script in less than six months. (But students are given one full year from their enrollment date to submit their script for feedback).

Can I speak to someone directly regarding the course?

Yes! You can speak to Debbie, who instructs the course by calling (310) 295-1214.
