(Film Co-op Members are required to take at least one screenwriting course before they direct/produce their own projects through the Film Co-op)
This workshop will be comprised of two parts:
In-class discussion/writing exercises based on participants' review of hand-out material
2) Readings/critique/discussion of scripts in progress.
In order to get the most out of our limited time, the instructor will email hand-out materials in PDF or text format a few weeks prior to the workshop. Class discussions will focus on topics picked by the participants. So, for instance, if script formatting matters continue to mystify after review of hand-out material, the workshop can comprise a three-hour discussion of this driest of topics. It is up to the majority.
The instructor will require all participants to have at least a half-page summary or outline of a script they wish to develop for class discussion and very constructive, non-judgmental critique. If you have a partial or complete first-draft script, please, please, please bring that with you.
