This Saturday! Hollywood 101: Screenwriting Do’s, Don’ts & Why’s
Taking your project from concept to first draft.
DATE: Mondays, October 6 – November 24
This eight-week course is designed to move writers from concept through first draft in eight weeks. Through a process of learning theory, seeing it at work in existing movies, then applying it your own work, writers will be challenged and encouraged in their own projects. Each week will focus on a different step in the process, beginning with story concept, moving to character creation and structures, pre-writing strategies, and then the practice of writing as students draft their feature screenplays. Along the way, students will have opportunities to share their experiences and build workshop relationships as they all drive toward the first draft goal.
