Writing for The Screen

Students are guided from the development of a concept to the completion of either a narrative or a non-narrative screenplay. Discussion of technique is supplemented by analysis of original screenplays and by screening of films illustrating such features of cinematic writing as structure, conflict, and resolution. The course covers both writing for film and writing for television. Some attention is given to book and play adaptations.
