Screenwriting Workshop I

Writing for the Screen I
This course will introduce the fundamental elements of dramatic narrative as they relate to visual storytelling. Special emphasis will be placed on the process of generating original story material and learning the craft of screenwriting-including (but not limited to) topics such as treatments, step-outlines, act structure, beat sheets, character biographies, back-story, formatting standards, and narrative strategies. Students will be required to write both short scripts and to author the first half of an original feature-length screenplay. Required readings in theory and practice will inform and accompany close study of selected screenplays and films. (FMMC 0101 OR ENAM 0170 or approval of instructor) 3 hrs. sem./3 hrs. screen.
