Students write their own movies in this noncredit workshop that discusses the basics of writing for the screen, both large and small. Learn professional screenplay format, proper story structure, character development, and most importantly, how to get those great ideas onto the page.

Students build the skills needed to write compelling, satisfying screenplays not just over the summer but for the rest of their lives as well.
