This course is for anyone who loves movies and is interested in learning what it takes to write a screenplay. Film is a visual media, but it all starts with a great idea and a well-written script. In this course, you will learn to generate concepts, structure a screenplay, and use dialogue, conflict and characters to bring your stories to life. Fun and informative, the class incorporates film clips, creative exercises, in-class writing assignments, and samples of screenplays from successful movies.
A full course refund will only be provided if you withdraw from a course prior to the course start date. For courses with more than one class, a refund, less a minimum $15 administrative fee may be issued if you withdraw prior to the second class. Depending on your method of payment, a refund will be either mailed to you or credited to your credit card.
