Screenplays demand a specific structure. In this seminar students will begin with an idea and during the first five sessions build a coherent treatment of the events and major emotional arcs of the film's three acts.

In the final five sessions students will begin and complete the first act and an outline of their feature length screenplay.

Topics to be discussed will include:
  • Cinematic Storytelling: The Foundation of Filmmaking
  • Good Stories vs. Good Movie Stories
  • The Mechanics of Moving a Story
  • Choosing a Narrative Structure
  • Techniques for Building Strong Characters
  • Common Story Pitfalls
