Poetic Screenwriting [Rose McAleese]
TIME UPDATE: This class will now take place from 7-9 pm PT. This has been updated from the print catalog.
All Levels | A screenplay consists of dramatic structure, action, and dialogue; we will learn the mechanics and techniques of screenwriting, using poetry as a starting point. Students will select a poem to translate into a one-act script, playing around with dialogue, character, and stage direction to turn words on the page into words in action. They will leave the class with a better understanding of the discipline of screenwriting, as well as a finished script for a short film.
