SCWR 342: Feature Development (Formerly DC 309)

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

This course offers a practical approach to the screenwriter's role in the development of a feature film. Emphasis will be placed on obtaining a greater understanding of narrative conventions, script analysis and the film market. From agents to studio executives, we will examine the varying points of view that comprise the development process. Constructive analysis will be used to break down feature length produced screenplays and student work. The assignments and class discussions are designed to expose the inner workings of Hollywood and provide a framework for what it takes to succeed in the entertainment industry.

SCWR 100 or SCWR 101 is a prerequisite for this class.
