The Present Tense

Spring 2021

Taught By: Talia Lugacy

Section: AX

CRN: 8993

Credits: 4

In this course students will write a short narrative script, for a film that they will produce in future semesters. The script will interpret and reflect the current social climate in which we find ourselves, by developing cinematic and visceral storytelling modes, character-driven material, and experimenting in narrative frameworks. The writing will coincide with a steady examination of feature films which provide insight into our present moment. [Track S]
