ADVANCED STORYTELLING AND SCREENWRITING

This course will build on the foundations set in VID 310 Screenwriting. With the basics of theory and formatting behind them, students will continue to sharpen their craft with a focus on description, dialogue, structure and character. The tools of screenwriting will be experimented with and expanded on through class assignments. Styles of analysis, 3 Act Structure, theme and economy-of-words will also be refined as they relate to short form screenwriting. Commercial breakdowns, short scripts, feature scripts and documentary breakdowns will all be discussed and dissected. Students will also take a great focus on audience, delivery and how demographics and investors influence storytelling and the message.
