Screenwriting 2

Spring 2019

Taught By: Greg DePaul

In workshop, with careful guidance by the instructor, each writer re-examines, tightens, and rewrites the outline, giving close attention to structure, logic, motivation, complex character development, tone, and theme. Students use their finished outlines to make some revisions to act one and draft acts two and three. Weekly page requirements keep them on track, while in-class reviews offer support, guidance, and direction. Emphasis on the specific problems of successful scene writing and on development of a professional writing style that makes for a compelling presentation on the page. The goal for each student is to finish the term with a polished and professional first draft. Prerequisite: Script Analysis, Screenwriting 1.
