Write Your Screenplay: A Twelve-Week Intensive
This 8 class/12 week program taught by screenwriter Gary Michael Weinberg covers all aspects of the creative process, including the basic elements of narrative, story structure, screenplay and teleplay formatting, how to write great dialogue and develop strong characters, and the "unwritten" rules that can aid students' screenwriting efforts. Weinberg will also present methods to increase their chances of getting their work seen and produced. The goal of this class is for each student to end the course having completed the first draft of a screenplay or teleplay. The unique format divides the course in half; the first four classes run weekly, the last four every other week. This allows students the time in between classes to work on their scripts, aiding each step of the way by Mr. Weinberg. Each class is from 7pm to 9:30pm. According to Tonya Nash of Folsom, "Gary's screenwriting class has been a wonderful experience, opening up a whole creative outlet for me that I never really knew existed.I would definitely recommend the class to both novice and seasoned writers... Wow! Now I can say that I actually consider myself a writer!"
