11225 CRW3610 Writing Scripts Web Web Not Online

CRW 3610.0W61: Scriptwriting Workshop (Rushin)

PR: CRW 3013.  Web-based class. 

This is a course for students seriously interested in the art and craft of writing original film scripts.  We’ll start by reading screenplays, studying the nuts and bolts, and trying our hands at short exercises designed to strengthen dialogue and drama, character and action, and, of course, the secrets of format.  We’ll also discuss the ins and outs of selling scripts (or at least getting them read) and the challenge of doing something fresh in American cinema.  Requirements include a short film script, the first act of an original feature-length film script, and active participation in workshop discussion.

CRW 4616.0W61: Advanced Scriptwriting Workshop (Rushin)

Spring 2018

PR: CRW 3610. Web-based class. 

This course will concentrate on writing the original spec screenplay.  Students will have the choice of completing a feature-length screenplay (perhaps one that was started in CRW 3610) or writing and workshopping three short screenplays.  Many successful screenwriters started their careers with short screenplays, and many a short screenplay served as the original inspiration for a subsequent feature.  Text: Claudia Hunter Johnson, Crafting Short Screenplays That Connect.  Requirements: one feature-length or three short screenplays to be workshopped in class; active participation in workshop discussion.
