During this eight week course, students of any skill level will learn how to create a successful feature film screenplay. Students will learn screenwriting technique by exploring the habits of working screenwriters, tools of the trade, and learning invaluable tips and tricks capable of giving anyone the best chance at striking the perfect balance between finding their own unique voice as a screenwriter and the proper technical disciplines required by the film industry.
Much of the teaching points are presented in the form of “what to avoid” and “what not to do” instructional presentations and open discussion which gives each student a very pragmatic and often amusing understanding of the typical pitfalls that would result in a “bad” screenplay.
There will also be a balance of weekly practical workshops that require each student to create a complete screenplay concept, step-by-step, using templates and formulas employed by industry professionals.
If you love movies and you love to write or you’re a simply a novice that wants to learn how, take this course, and set yourself on the path to becoming the next Tarantino!
