This is a two-part workshop with the first class on February 23 from 3:30 to 6PM and the second class on March 1 from 3:30 to 6PM.
This two-part short screenplay intensive is all about turning that idea in your head into a working script. The first class will focus on fleshing out ideas using prompts, short readings, and guided work. The second will be examining and developing (as a group) the screenplays written by the students between the first and second class.
If you've ever wanted to write a short screenplay or have an idea you're struggling to bring to life, this workshop is designed for you. We'll discuss, define, and explore the conventions of screenwriting as they apply to your work. We'll also take a look at example scripts and scenes from major films.
Students will receive a short email prior to the first class with guidance on what to prepare and bring.
