Overview Overview
 

This practice-based module aims to provide students with the creative methods and research techniques involved in the development of narrative screenplays for film, television, and the web. As part of the process, students will deepen their understanding of the mechanics of screen narrative. They will also learn the practical skills necessary to package and pitch their scripts. Class meetings are discussion based and include screenings, script analysis, and workshops. Students should expect to take active part in weekly discussions, to offer constructive critiques of each other's work, and to participate in script readings and other elements of the workshop throughout the term. In addition to the workshop aspects of the course, students will develop material through a series of writing exercises and assignments. Moreover, they will analyse and discuss different industry approaches and guiding principles for successful screenwriting.
