Course Description

Introduction to Screenwriting (6 week course) – November

Flying Turtle Productions (Formerly the Abbey School of Drama)

The goal of this course is to set a foundation for writing an original screenplay. While incorporating the basic tools of writing for film, we will explore ways of spinning your ideas into something notable and perhaps special. You will be encouraged to experiment within the freedom of writers-room environment.

Areas to be covered:

The generation of original content, depth of character, dialogue that sings, the power of images and setting, and stage directions, taste, tone and style. Filmmaking as a collaborative art: agents, producers and “the Business”.

No experience is needed for this course; just the enthusiasm to write the film that YOU would love to see. Class size is limited to 10 students maximum for this course.
