Whether you’re an aspiring screenwriter who wants to sell a screenplay or a filmmaker trying to write something to shoot yourself, this class will teach you the fundamentals of screenwriting for the short and the feature film. You will learn everything from the basics of formatting and structure, to the depths of character development and meaningful storytelling. Students will have the opportunity to bring pages for review every week and will receive detailed feedback on all writing assignments. There will be opportunities for cold reads, interactive exercises, and other engaging group activities. By the end of the course, every student will have either a completed script for a short film or a completed outline and key scenes written for a feature-length film. Join other writers, hone your craft, learn, and write in our brand new, beautiful Intermission lounge. This is not just a class. This is a unique creative writing experience.
