DC 402: Writing the Feature I

This course focuses on creating a vetted concept and step outline for a feature length screenplay. Emphasis is put on idea origination and world building, forming engaging characters, and structuring an affecting plot with cause and effect storytelling. Through script readings, weekly assignments, and in-class workshops, students will hone their unique voice to craft the dramatic template for a cinematically viable story. The feature length screenplay developed in this course should be written, revised, and polished in DC 403 and DC 404.

This course is repeatable for 8.00 credit hours.
