Script Writing 8 week class
Script Writing is an eight-week class that examines the art of screenwriting from a predominately Hollywood point of view. The emphasis is placed on creating sellable screenplays that may appeal to a broad commercial market. Techniques used by many of the most successful writers in film will be studied and explained to encourage students to write their best. Students are welcomed to bring scripts that they are already working on, or ideas that they have been mulling over for years. Or—students may follow a set of parameters, laid out especially for this class, which involves a unique opportunity in another class offered here at MGA. Regardless of the script a student chooses to work on, a finished script must be presented within a week of completing this class.
