SCREEN 714

Advanced Screenwriting: Drama


Description

This class is an introduction to feature film writing. With a combination of lectures and workshops, it builds on the foundations of SCREEN 705 or SCREEN 700. As you work on your own original feature and analyse each other’s work, a better sense of structure, plot, characters, dialogue, genre and nuance must emerge. This course will also enable you to understand and explore the dynamics of constructive feedback and rewriting, also known in the film industry as the "development process". If your focus is feature development, please see SCREEN 715.
