Registration begins at 8:00 am. Kindly arrive with ample time to sign in, receive your workbook and badge holder, and find your seat of choice.
The class will begin promptly at 9:00 am. Please be punctual. If you are late, you will not be permitted in the lecture hall until the first break. If you are late returning after a break, you will not be able to enter until the following break. This is to prevent disturbances to Mr. McKee and the other seminar attendees.
Specific seats are not generally assigned during registration. Seating at the seminar is on a “first come, first served” basis and therefore we recommend that you arrive early so that you may select your desired seat.
We do reserve a number of spaces at the rear of the lecture hall for those using laptops. See below.
If you need to get up from your seat often (for health reasons, comfort reasons, etc.) please sit in an aisle seat and towards the back of the theatre. If you require any special seating arrangements, please let us know. We will do our best to accommodate you.
The seminar schedules appearing on our website and in our emails are only intended to be a guide to help you prepare. The times set out within the schedule represent our best estimates. Mr. McKee aims to wrap up the seminar within these time limits, but, as with all live performances, occasionally a seminar runs shorter or longer.
The seminar outlines and film / television references appearing on the website and in our emails are also only intended as a guide to help you prepare. As Mr. McKee continues to update his seminars with more relevant and more recent references, these items are subject to change.
While Mr. McKee may occasionally invite responses from the audience during the lecture, as a general rule he will take questions only during the breaks due to the massive amount of material he must cover during the seminar.
