Introduction to Screenwriting: Thursday Mornings

This course is designed as both an introduction for students who are new to screenwriting, and as continuity for those who have already started writing a screenplay and wish to further develop their scripts. No matter your level of experience, everyone will benefit from the groups’ members sharing their experiences they encounter. Class activities will include: discussing and developing story ideas, and sharing comments and suggesting solutions; an introduction to the three-act structure and the critical importance of the first 10 pages; the use of conflict to move the story forward, and creating compelling characters and character arcs. In-class screening of films is intended to help students learn how to observe and articulate helpful writing techniques from great films. Those with screenwriting experience who have been working on existing story treatments, outlines, or early drafts, are invited to continue those projects, with a view towards moving closer to the completion of a well-written first draft. Screenwriting is an exciting, creative, and labor-intensive art that can be learned. Every screenplay begins with FADE IN. Let’s get started.

Please note: This class is an online class. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
