This course is an introduction to writing for the screen and exploring how screenplays are similar, or different, from other types of writing. Students will get experience in both reading and writing screenplays to gain an understanding of story elements such as character and plot, as well as how screenwriters use film techniques to tell their story. For example, students will examine how to use language and the formatting of the page to create suspense or build a comedic moment. This class will benefit students who love to write as well as aspiring filmmakers.
