Storytelling for the Screen
LitSpace Literary Arts Institute at Morean Arts Center
Saint Petersburg, FL
Share this event:

Visual storytelling is accessible now more than ever. This class will introduce common methods for writing for the screen, including screenplays and teleplays. We will cover the basic elements that go into a standard screenplay as well as some differences between short films, full-length films, hour-long drama scripts, and half-hour comedy scripts. We will brainstorm ways to think visually and compare how screenwriting differs from other forms of storytelling such as fiction writing. Additionally, we will go over some ways to get our screenplays out into the world. By the end of this class, writers will have the first page of a screenplay ready to expand upon with tools learned in class.
