Adaptation (Formerly DC 347)
This course will explore the process of adapting existing material into a feature screenplay or teleplay. With the professor's guidance, students will choose material from the public domain to adapt, and then formulate a logline, short pitch, treatment, and first act of a feature screenplay (or two acts of a teleplay). Students will also be exposed to the process by which media rights to existing material can be obtained, should they wish to pursue intellectual property in the future.
SCWR 302 or SCWR 352 or SCWR 353 is a prerequisite for this course.
