PR: English major or minor, and grade of C (2.0) or better required in CRW 3013 and CRW 3053

This course will introduce students to the basic theories and practices associated with game design, including brainstorming, the elements of gameplay, artificial intelligence, and storytelling within dynamic, interactive systems. Articles written by experts I the field will be analyzed as we explore the challenges and pitfalls of attempting to merge stories with games. Students will begin working alone to conceive and outline their own game and produce interactive scripts for elements such as cut scenes and scripted events to be workshopped in class. Students will then be assigned to "design teams" to produce and present to the class 20-30 page "story bibles" for an original game.

PR: English major or minor, and grade of C (2.0) or better required in CRW 3610

In this summer course, students will write approximately twenty pages of screenplay material, along with committed critiques of their peers' work. A wide range of lengths and genres will be considered, including but not limited to short films, feature films, one-hour episodic television scripts, half-hour comedy scripts, and scripts for animated series. Students should come well-prepared to discuss the course materials, the work of their peers, and have a STRONG knowledge of screenplay format, since CRW 3610 (the intro course) is a prerequisite here. At the end of the semester, students will submit their very best (and often heavily revised pages) along with a revision reflection that details this process.

CRW 4616: Advanced Scriptwriting Workshop
(Telep)

This is an advanced course for those serious about writing the original spec screenplay. Spec simply means you're writing on speculation rather than as a hired writer under contract. Most writers break into the business by writing spec scripts and trying to get agents, managers, and/or producers interested in their work.

Your goal in this class is to write a script that could be produced. There are no restrictions on genre or production budget (although the lower the budget, the easier it can be shot on a shoestring, the better the chance your script might actually be filmed). All I require is that you aim high, work like a professional, and strive to write compelling material.

ENC 3930H: Gaming Literacy and Culture
This course will introduce students to theoretical and applied concepts in video game design and explore the literary impact of video games on our culture. Students will critically evaluate video games as rhetorical devices and will learn techniques for dealing with particular game design strategies such as artificial intelligence, storytelling, cueing, and establishing/maintaining immersion. In order to better understand game literacies, students will be expected to produce a group-produced game design document (GDD). Using milestone presentations and game design pitches, students will be expected to contribute to multimedia presentations that outline the progress on the GDD (analogous to exec reviews / green light meetings in industry). Each contribution should emphasize work that the student has completed to ensure he or she receives credit.
