  • Overview

    This course introduces students to the foundations of screenwriting, as students workshop ideas, write loglines, treatments, rough drafts, and shooting scripts. Instruction focuses on the essentials of visual storytelling, dramatic structure, and character development. In-class discussion provides students with constructive analysis and support, as students learn to tell their stories visually, rather than through  dialogue. The scripts they write become the basis of all class work in the first semester.
