During this intermediate class, you will work toward a first draft of a feature length screenplay – the true test of a writer who wants to create for film or television. Develop and explore the essentials of a well-executed screenplay, including a 90-120 page draft, the principals of story (character, plot and tone), engagement and a working knowledge of how to execute the visual narrative form.
