WRT 207 - Creative Screenwriting (4 Cr.)

(formerly WRT 107)
This creative screenwriting workshop course guides participants through the process of transforming an original story into a feature film script. Students begin by analyzing award-winning original screenplays in order to understand cinematic language and its unique method of communication, the demands of its particular form of narrative design, and the importance of act structure in this medium. Students then are shepherded through the complex screenwriting process together in workshop format. They will share with each other several project steps along the way to ensure that the screenplay itself reaches full potential. Students examine storyline and structure from concept to synopsis to script, with particular attention to act structure, scene arc design, dialogue, characterization, plot development, pacing, subtext, and visual storytelling. The class features a roundtable workshop format in a demanding environment where students participate as both artist and critic, providing analyses of each other’s work. The course allows each student the opportunity to complete a large-scale project in a fully realized workshop environment. Spring semester. U’Ren.
