Course Code: ARTS2457

Before Lights, Camera, Action! there's the screenplay - the essential blueprint of cinematic storytelling. This course provides an introduction into the art and craft of screenwriting with a specific focus on the short screenplay. Through informal lectures, screenings, group discussion and in-class exercises, learn the fundamentals of narrative screenwriting, such as three-act structure, character, theme, plot, subplot, dialogue, and subtext. A process-oriented course, you will develop an original idea with the goal of completing the first draft of a 5-10 minute screenplay by the end of the course. No prior screenwriting experience is necessary.
