SAC - Screenwriting (Commuter)

Columbia College Chicago • Office of Continuing Education 1312 S. Michigan Ave. ChicagoIL  60605 Organized by Columbia College Chicago

About this event


This course 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.
Summer at Columbia students are automatically enrolled in a 1 credit hour Entrepreneurship for Creatives course in addition to the course listed above.
COMMUTER ONLY. If you are interested in housing please return to the courses home page and select "Screenwriting (Residential)"
