– Writing screenplays for short films and web series formats.
– Class is for aspiring novice screenwriters who have that great idea that they want to make themselves or to pitch to producers, investors, networks, and executives.
– For short films, this class is useful in simplifying your story to the most crucial scenes and character development in a tight 3-act structure. For web series, you will be able to understand how to formulate story and character arcs that take place over the course of several episodes while keeping the audience engaged.
– Either Final Draft or CeltX are the most highly recommended materials for completing the Class Project where you get to write your short script or webisode pilot.
