Thanks for submitting!

Class can also be made to Dan via (310) 428-9068 if you use Venmo, Zelle, or Google Pay. Please be sure to email him at circa87films@gmail.com to let him know what day you're choosing:

  • In this screenwriting mentorship with Hollywood-turned St. Louis filmmaker Dan Steadman, new screenwriters will produce scenes and work on their own screenplays.

  • First-timers to experienced writers are all welcome.

  • Some of your exercise assignments from Dan may actually get produced with the actors in the Actors' Workout. Watch your words come to life!

  • Or you can choose to work with Dan on your own project idea. All of your original screenplays are, of course, your own property and copyright. Dan is only your mentor and consultant.

  • Cost is $100 for 2 months. There's also an option for 3 months, which is more optimal time to get started.

  • Some of the mentorship happens online, through Zoom, video classroom sessions, and we'll even be meeting in person a few times to set up our own mock TV writers rooom. 

  • Just let Dan know what your goals are and a little about your background. Email is circa87films@gmail.com
