CRW 377 Screenwriting II

This course focuses on the art and craft of writing the feature film.  It teaches students the rules and conventions of screenplay form, as well as the principles of storytelling central to the feature film format.  Over the course of the semester, students will develop their own original feature scripts, taking them from concept to outline to screenplay in a workshop setting.  Along the way, they will learn how to generate and shape story ideas, structure a script, create compelling characters and scenes, write visually, and properly format a screenplay.  By the end of the course, students will have created a detailed outline for an original feature screenplay and drafted, revised, and polished the first act of the script. Prerequisite: FCO 105 .
