This course is designed to help you get your story idea out of your head and onto the written page. We’ll explore the conventions of screenwriting: format, structure, dialogue, and conflict, as well as how to craft a compelling narrative. You’ll have the ability to reinforce what you’ve learned from our discussions through written assignments aimed at kicking off a first draft of your script. The goal of this course is to help you develop skills in the fundamentals of screenwriting.
