Screenwriting I

DFM 228
Description: The course provides an intensive introduction to screenwriting. Presented as a seminar and writing workshop, the class reads and discusses short and feature-length screenplays, including their own works-in-progress, as well as comparing the screenwriting of professionals to the films those scripts became. Writing one short and one feature-length screenplay leads students to integrate theory and practice as they explore the viability of story ideas in the film medium, character development, conflict, dialogue writing, dramatic structure, and industry standards for script formatting.
