SCWR 302: Writing the Feature Screenplay (Formerly DC 301)

Due to COVID-19, Spring in-class sections will be conducted online. Please contact your instructor for more information.

This course focuses on completing the first draft of a feature length screenplay. Emphasis will be placed on a foundation of character, structure, plot, and theme to bring the writer's vetted concept to fruition. The lectures, in-class workshops, and aggressive page deadlines are designed to culminate in a spec screenplay that showcases voice and command of screenwriting conventions.

SCWR 301 is a prerequisite for this class.

This course is repeatable.
