Introduction To Screenwriting (Online Course)

About Introduction To Screenwriting (Online Course)

This class will be taught online and you can take part from the comfort of your own home. The RCS campus will re-open in September with a limited capacity for degree students only to ensure a safe learning environment for all.

The course will strip the script down to its basic elements, discussing each one in turn and then explore how the elements merge and work together to form a coherent blueprint for a moving picture.

The course will also introduce participants to theoretical approaches to screenwriting as a whole, to writing characters and film structure.

By the end of the course, students should:

- Have a firm grasp of the elements that contribute to Story including the crucial distinction between Plot and Story
- Understanding of the importance of the 3 Act Structure and its 5 Tent-Poles
- Study the exploration of how to create relatable Characters and the necessity of Transformational Imperatives
- Have an awareness that dialogue is Action, not speech, and as such should be considered a function of intent.
- Create of 5-10 pages of original script
