Our goal in Advanced Screenwriting is to mimic a real life working writer’s room and create a screenwriting workshop. What that means is that each of you will not only write and work on your own screenplays, but also be responsible for providing feedback and collaboration on the work of your other writers in the room. We will write collaborative screenplays as well as individual screenplays.
Besides the goal of creating a writer’s room, the other goal of the class is to prepare you for more independent writing and self-critique.
You will develop several original short screenplays from prose narrative story to film treatment to screenplay.
Each of these phases of screenwriting will involve four major areas of development: Story and Structure, Scene Sequence Approach to Screenwriting, Writing Realistic Dialogue, and, yes, Story and Structure Again.
