Ready to take the next step with your story idea? Do you want to see if you've got what it takes to complete a full-length feature script? This writer's boot camp will take you through the development process, where you will create a professional log line, synopsis, outline, and the first act (25-30 pages) of your script. Students will receive hands-on coaching through an intensive development and writing process. This course is ideal for students who have completed Screenwriting Fundamentals or those who have started a script, but need help finishing.

We all love movies and television, so why not learn the basics of what goes into making a visual story? Throughout this course, students will cover the basics of camera and lighting. Students will be introduced to the various roles and titles on a film set and will talk about creating short scripts, commercials, and PSA’s (Public Service Announcements). Instruction will cover the techniques of camera movement and using lighting to increase the value of the story being told. All of this will build to final shoot in which students will work together to write, direct and film a short piece that they will edit and then critique in class. Students should bring their own DSLR or HD cameras; more information will be provided prior to the start of class.
Get hands-on guidance for developing a great idea into a story that conforms to professional Hollywood standards, and discover elements that strengthen or weaken a script. Students will write actual script pages and begin the journey of translating a story from their head onto the page.
