There is no single right way to write a screenplay, only an infinite number of wrong ways. This course addresses how to avoid them by ensuring your screenplay's ability to communicate the potential and clarity of your cinematic ideas to the reader (agent/producer/actor/etc.). Through weekly exercises and evaluation, we will troubleshoot the most problematic aspects of script execution to increase your chances of being regarded as a quality screenwriter, deserving of professional consideration. Whether you wish to sell your screenplays outright, secure other writing assignments, or hook needed talent that can enable you to produce your work independently, in this course you will learn the rules of writing for the screen and how to break them successfully.

  • NOTE  Course is intended for beginners, but writers of all levels will benefit.
