Movies are built on the foundation of a screenplay shaped by a screenwriter. This course provides students with an overview of the process of writing for the screen by focusing on the fundamentals -- from character development and dialogue to the structural expectations particular to film.

While screenwriting skills are essential to any aspiring filmmaker, the course also entertains and informs the more casual film lover. Using handouts, writing exercises, thoughtful discussion and film clips, participants learn to mine their own experience and that of their peers for stories, and to recognize the contributions made by the cinema scribes who have paved the way.

In sum, students gain the experience that is the first step toward realizing the film -- be it an animation, music video or other form.

Tuition [Non Credit]: $285.00

--Course total: $285.00
