Screenwriting 11

Screenwriters are problem-solvers. When characters are placed in settings  with obstacles, a writer must find a believable but inevitable mix of  events to make for a compelling story. Introduction to Screenwriting 11  is different from other screenwriting courses and resources as it  provides students with insights into the practical problems that a  screenwriter typically has to solve. A student can have all the  knowledge and information about crafting a screenplay, but it is only  when she gets a sense of the real problems involved in writing, will she  be well prepared to write a screenplay.

This survey course walks with a student as she develops a screenplay  from idea to final draft. The course discusses all essential components  for the creation of a successful screenplay. Topics include Format,  Story Structure, Character Development and Cast Creation, Dialogue,  Theme, Story Theory and advanced techniques like Scene Crafting.
