Introduction to Screenwriting

“Just tell a good story.” — Norman Jewison

Writing for film requires both a good story and a solid understanding of the craft of screenwriting. During this online course, we will explore the basic tools of this dynamic visual medium and use these tools to unlock the potential of your screenplay idea. Topics covered include loglines, premise, theme, character, structure, dialogue and symbol. Please bring your screenplay ideas to the first class. No experience necessary.

*All workshops will take place online using ZOOM. You will recieve a link prior to this workshop.
