Course Description

Do you have an excellent idea for a movie but don’t know how or where to start? If you answered yes, then this class is for you. We’ll explore industry standards and standouts as we examine screenplay, form, structure, and genre to help you hone your ideas. You’ll learn story structure and the elements required to write a script utilizing industry-standard best practices and get started writing your first draft. Scenes from your screenplay will be work-shopped in class, where you’ll get to hear them read aloud and receive feedback from classmates. By the end of the course, you’ll have a firm understanding of how to write a full feature. Students should have basic computer skills.

Testimonials

Taking this class was worth my journey into screenplay writing. I always had a passion for writing but never could figure out if it was for books or a screenplay until I took this class for Parts 1 and 2. Virginia Bailey is a fantastic teacher. She showed me things I would have never learned on my own. She guided us all in the right direction. I had to stop and listen to what she was pointing out, and when I did, I started to see my work come to life. If it were not for her putting out this class, I would have been lost through the process of writing my first screenplay. I am thankful for her help, and I hope for part 3 of her class.  - Ciara
