Introduction to Screenwriting

Description

Got a brilliant idea for a TV show or a movie -- but haven’t been able to work it into a finished project yet? Fully ‘fleshing out’ the story is critical -- we’ll tackle your ideas and expand them into robust stories. Join us to explore the intricacies of story development using the paradigm of 3-act mythic structure (and 6-acts for TV). Work on selecting well-defined themes, uncovering the true journey of protagonists as well as the specific steps of the intended character arc. Consider the advantages of knowing your story’s every twist and turn before you put the first word on paper.
