Screenwriting I: Short Screenwriting for Filmmakers

Moon Molson

Back to "Spring 2022" courses

This course will introduce students to the foundational principles and techniques of screenwriting, taking into account the practical considerations of film production. Questions of thematic cohesiveness, plot construction, logical cause and effect, character behavior, dialogue, genre consistency and pace will be explored as students gain confidence in the form by completing a number of short screenplays. The course will illustrate and analyze the power of visual storytelling to communicate a story to an audience, and will guide students to create texts that serve as “blueprints” for emotionally powerful and immersive visual experiences.
