Each class will be part discussion, part workshop. There is much to explore about the craft of screenwriting and how we as writers can effectively use the screenplay form to express our intentions on the page. Discussions will focus on pre-assigned D.C.-set films that students are required to screen outside of class. We will discuss the films’ plots, structure, character development, genre and other aspects of the movie that help to give students insights into the essential elements of successful filmmaking.
