Developing Story Narratives - Film and TV
Andy Watts, Lecturer
Developing Story Narratives is a three-week course designed specifically to introduce the student to magical world of writing for film and television. Utilizing dramatic techniques from theater, art, literature and film, this course will explore approaches and methodologies to getting the stories trapped inside your head out and onto the page in a compelling and engaging manner.
The focus will be on writing and revising and writing again - not just talking about writing - where the work will be rigorously work-shopped in class. By the end of the course, students will understand what goes into writing a satisfying screenplay, how to read and critique your own and other’s work and how to format your scripts professionally. Participants will not only have a number of short screenplays ready to go shoot, but the tools available to write countless more.
