Event description

Description

In this 8-week intermediate screenwriting course, students receive a comprehensive overview of screenwriting and come away with a solid logline, synopsis and outline for their story: the necessary tools needed to begin writing an original screenplay or TV Pilot. During class, students delve deeper into the basic topics to take their concept to the next level—from idea to the page. By studying and analyzing setting, characters, plot structure, act breaks and twists, dialogue and more, students will be ready to outline their story. Each week, students take turns presenting ideas to the class and receiving live feedback from the class and instructor. During the last two classes, each student will pitch their concept and will feedback. This class is for students with a basic knowledge of screenwriting who'd like to prep themselves to write a professional screenplay.

Note: Students are required to purchase Story by Robert McKee and The Anatomy of Story by John Truby.
