What you can learn.

  • Understand the basics of script writing structure
  • Lay the groundwork for a complete feature film screenplay
  • Create vivid characters and realistic conflict

About this course:

This second in a four-part sequence in writing a feature film script has you hit the ground running. You begin by pitching your story based on your outline and revising it to make sure the premise can carry the entire movie. Armed with a workable outline, you then flesh it out into either a beat sheet or treatment (at the instructor's discretion) and begin writing your screenplay. Personalized feedback along with mini-lectures on key craft points, including character development, story structure, and conflict, help you to meet the course goal, which is to write Act I (approximately 30 pages). May be repeated for credit. 
Prerequisites
SCRIPT X 410.1 Feature Film I. Students must bring a four-to-five-page outline they created in Feature Film I to first class meeting and be prepared to pitch it.
