This course introduces the beginning screenwriter to the tools, vocabulary, and techniques used to write a screen story and take an original idea to outline form. Projects illustrate specific craft-related elements such as psychology of character, narrative storytelling, the visuals of storytelling and the use of dramatic tension. Critiques and analysis of cinematic works familiarize students with screenwriting terminology while they develop an original idea into a detailed outline for a screenplay. Through exercises, lectures and assignments the format and character of the screenplay are explored and by the end of the course, students have their story elements and outline and start their script.
