Life is intriguing even in its most minor measures. A short film delivers a brief but meaningful story of a character with a problem that needs to be solved (via a Big Want), but someone or something gets in the way. That’s storytelling in a nutshell. Who your Main Character is, WHAT problem needs solving, and HOW the Main Opposer makes the short journey difficult is up to you! Throughout this eight-week class, you will be guided through the basics of Story Development, Character Development, Story Structure, Theme, Conflict, Setting, Dialogue, Scene-Writing, and Screenwriting—all the tools you need to write an impressive first draft in 10 pages or less. Everyone will have the option of doing a Live Reading at “Hollywood at Harper -- 5-Minute Film Fest” in May and entering scripts into external film festivals for students.
Make every day count. Discover your passions. Advance your career. Play and learn.
I started a new job as a graphic and web designer and the digital badge I got was part of the reason they chose to hire me. I couldn't have done it without you!
David is a truly amazing teacher who makes learning the harmonica lots of fun. His enthusiasm is contagious and he has a heart of gold.
The Writing Salon was so much more than a writing class. The experience was energetic, enthusiastic and supportive. I highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to develop their skills as a writer!
As always, your Spanish classes are packed with new information about the language. You make it easy to learn Spanish and keep it very interesting. Thank you!
I have participated in many LLI classes over the past two years. Gary is a terrific discussion facilitator and brings excellent background knowledge to our classes. I'm learning so much about Foreign Policy.
Just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your class. Hope you will have more classes since I am a novice in the wine area and am anxious to learn.
