You'll work in groups to read and discuss your scripts and ideas for a variety of platforms, listening to actors’ readings of your work and using this experience to improve the flow, intensity and quality of your writing.
You’ll explore the history of writing for the screen and how this relates to contemporary practice.
The Global Market for Screenwriting
Taught by experts, this module will give you a sense of what kind of content is sought-after in the market you’re aiming to write for.
In regular group workshops you will be encouraged to critique your own writing, articulate its intent to others and reflect on your creative approach. You will also be expected to read other students’ work and offer detailed feedback.
Final Major Project
For your final project you will write a complete script or several short pieces for online audiences. You’ll then format and prepare these to be sent to your first client/collaborator or brought to life in your first online project.
