Introduction to Screenwriting

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 (All day)

There's never been a better time to start a career as a screenwriter. With technological breakthroughs bringing the cost of making and distributing movies down to almost nothing, there's going to be a huge demand for great scripts—and for people who can write them. Whether you want to write micro-budget indie films or Hollywood blockbusters, this course will teach you everything you need to know to create a script that can sell. You'll start with the fundamentals of stories—why audiences need them, what they expect from them, and what kinds of stories work time after time. Then you'll learn how to write your own. You'll see how to come up with an idea, how to develop that tiny spark into a story, and finally how to structure it into a screenplay. 

A new session of this course begins each month. Once enrolled students will have access to the course for six-weeks and can complete course modules anytime day or night from the comfort of their home or office. Students can enroll and pay online by clicking the "Register Online" button above or complete a Payment Authorization Form to pay using a MSU AR account.
