      Introduction to Screenwriting- 8 week course

      NEW START DATE! May 8th!!
      Join award-winning screenwriter Andrew Shearer in this introductory course on the basics of screenwriting. Learn how to take your idea and develop it into a story ready to be made into a short film. Take your storywriting to the next level!

      During the 8 week course, students will learn the fundamentals of how to write a screenplay. Topics explored include screenwriting fundamentals (such as conflict, beginning/middle/end), finding the story spark and discovering what you want to say (theme), creating compelling characters, techniques to write a successful short film (vs the feature format), implementing successful visual storytelling, crafting well constructed scenes utilizing POV, dialogue, structure, and style, and understanding the basic formatting of a script. Students will leave with a completed short script and the beginnings of a feature screenplay.

      Class will meet once a week, Monday evenings, from 6:30- 9:30 pm, starting May 8th, 2017, for 8 weeks total (skipping Memorial Day week). Tuition for the course is $525, and a 20% deposit ($105) is required 2 weeks prior to class to guarantee placement.
