Students will learn the basics of screenwriting with a focus on screenplay format and the craft of storytelling, screenplay structure, dialogue, and effective description. Students will analyze the work of successfully produced screenplays to analyze what makes good writing and practice these techniques in short exercises to share with the group as well as complete generative writing exercises to get the ideas flowing. No previous experience is required. Through feedback and discussion, students will leave with a better understanding of story and screenplay and will begin to develop their own original work. The class culminates in a sharing of their work with feedback from peers and the teacher. (Class Size 8-10).
