This 4-week class is designed for anyone who has ever had an idea for a screenplay and wondered what makes a great script into a successful film. Do you know what separates a spec script from a production script or a shooting script? How a screenplay differs from other forms of writing? When to follow the “rules” of a screenplay, when to break them, and why? Wade through the ins-and-outs of screenwriting, the elements that comprise a successful screenplay, and how to identify these elements in successful scripts and movies. You will learn: * Why structure is important, not just in film but in any art form * The basics of the storytelling arc * The importance of character to a strong narrative * How to craft interesting dialogue unique to each character * Multi-character narratives that break the typical mainstream structure * The importance of formatting * How to use plot devices to enhance your story.
