Screenwriting II: Structure and Process of Screenwriting

In Structure and Process, students develop the basic storyline for their screenplay while receiving further in-depth instruction in screenwriting and story structure. Topics covered during this class include creating story, structuring the plot and subplots, plot points, ingredients to construct effective opening pages, and detailed instruction on how to build dramatic scenes.

Creating the First Draft

In Creating the First Draft, students finish writing their screenplays from Screenwriting II. This course deals with the overall structure of screenplays from the individual scene to the rhythms of the complete piece. In addition, several classes will focus on effective dialogue, humor, and adding suspense and “twists” to the story.

Screenwriting I: Nuts and Bolts of Screenwriting

Nuts and Bolts of Screenwriting lays the groundwork for screenplay writing by providing students with a total immersion in script structure and the craft of writing for the screen. The class will read, view, and discuss four feature-length screenplays. As we examine scripts of vastly different styles, students will begin work on their own feature-length ideas, exploring the concept and creating the foundation for a story.
