Writing Movies

Instructor(s): Michael M.B. Galvin
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

JY17-D04

All the best stuff happens before the cameras roll! In this workshop we’ll talk about what makes screenplays work and learn basic techniques by focusing on structure, story, characters, dialogue, and format. We’ll watch scenes from different movie genres and break down their scripts to see how the writer made it all happen. Students should come in with ideas for a plot or a character in a situation. We’ll help each other develop ideas as we go from loglines to treatments to scripts. We’ll examine the differences between scripts for comedies, dramas, thrillers, and horror films and we’ll see what goes into crafting a screenplay that sings.
