The screenwriting skill set honed in this class will include building the rising action from the second act through the climax within a script, as well as promoting character and plot development through dialogue and action. Writers will focus on the resolution or third act of a screenplay 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 and begin rewrites on your completed script. This is the third class in a series of three, but you are welcome to join us even if you missed the first two, if you are already at work on a screenplay. It is possible to complete the first draft of a script during this course!
