A screenplay not only tells a story, it serves as a blueprint for creating a film. During this class, you'll discover how to plot your story, create fascinating characters, and structure the three acts. You'll leave with your screenplay plotted out, your story outlined, and a completed first act. Examples from a variety of genres will be reviewed, as well as samples from popular screenplays. Both novice and experienced writers are welcome.
