This class tends to fill early, but spots can open up as students' plans change. Interested students who cannot register because the course is at capacity should visit Student Services Online (SSOL) regularly to check for new availabilities.

This course is offered in the summer session only.

 

Modern feature-length screenplays demand a specific architecture. In this class students will enter with an idea for a film, and during the first eight sessions build a coherent treatment; that is, a summary of the events and major emotional arcs of the film's three acts. In the final four sessions students will begin and complete the first act of their feature-length screenplay.

 

All courses subject to change.
