About the Class
 
The foundation of this course is a series of writing assignments that address the building blocks of a good script. Students will learn how to use the specific tools of screenwriting in their own work, and will write two short scripts.
 
This class is structured to nurture the students writing with a combination of lectures and discussions, including such topics as:
 
  • Screenplay structure
  • Generating strong characters
  • Character development
  • Protagonist/antagonist, hero/opponent conflict
  • The importance of three-dimensional characters and their world
  • How character development interacts with and dictates story structure
Students will learn the importance of writing from personal belief.
