Discover the art and craft of screenwriting, from concept to first original idea, and transform it to screenwriting form. Each week, students will watch movies at home, which will be discussed in class. Structure, characterization, and plot will be talked about, and students will also write and critique their material in a workshop/classroom setting. The Screenwriters Workbook by Syd Field (ISBN: 440582253) is suggested, but not required. Students must be able to attend the 2nd class. If you cannot, then do not sign up for the class.
