In this fast-paced and fun screenwriting class for teen writers at all levels, we will test out movie concepts and help you develop a script for a short film. Using screenwriting format and structure as a guide, you will map out the plot of your movie, pitch your ideas and write scenes in exciting locations with powerful characters.

The class features movie clips, examples from produced screenplays, and writing exercises designed to help you develop your ideas and write a screenplay. The instructor will provide feedback on your work throughout the course. By the end of the week, you will have written the first draft of a short screenplay.
