The screenwriting skill set honed in this class will include scene shaping and transitions, as well as promoting character development through dialogue and action. Writers will focus on the second act or heart of a screenplay (sometimes also called the murky middle) and have the chance to workshop pages in class.

Using dramatic structure as a guide, we will ensure that every scene drives the action of your story forward. Write key scenes with expressive dialogue that emphasize the visual strengths of film and television. This is the second class in a series of three, but you are welcome to join us even if you missed the first one, if you are already at work on a screenplay. It is possible to complete the first draft of a script during this course!
