It's time to roll up your sleeves. This 8-week clinic will provide the individual attention, mentorship, and support needed to complete your feature narrative or documentary film script. Students will present their writing to the class for peer feedback and critique, guided by the instructor, and will be expected to revise their script regularly outside of class. Discussions will revolve around character development, plot line and structure, and effective utilization of story models. Students should already have a basic knowledge of screenwriting format; the elements of structure, plot, action, and character; and must have a current screenplay underway in order to take the class.
Instructor: Paul Peditto | Suggested Prerequisite: Screenwriting I
