This course is a workshop that explores basic methods of writing for cinema which further develop the students’ skills in presenting their ideas in written form. Students will craft skills basic to cinema writing: research, story development, scene structure, dialogue, and character definition. Emphasis is on finding visual equivalents for human emotions and on developing the writer’s individual personal vision. This work culminates in the development and revision of two short narrative scripts. Instrumental in the development of the student as a writer is the ability to read, and effectively critique, the work of their peers.
