SCWR 122: Script to Screen (Formerly DC 224)

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

This analytical course examines the screenplay's evolution to the screen from a writer's perspective. Students will read feature length scripts of varying genres and then perform a critical analysis and comparison of the text to the final produced versions of the films. Storytelling conventions such as structure, character development, theme, and the creation of tension will be used to uncover alterations and how these adjustments ultimately impacted the film's reception. (FORMERLY DC 224)
