HOW TO WRITE SCREENPLAYS

Ever had the idea for a film or for a TV show? This week we will go over the core fundamentals of storytelling for cinema, and the Spec Script format for scriptwriting. Reading through some of the best and worst scripts on the big screen, and deconstructing them down to their core. We will go over college level curriculum for script writing format and visual storytelling, encouraging everyone to think outside the box of their own creativity. The goal by the end of the week, is for everyone to have developed a screenplay of their own, one that could possibly be an Oscar winning motion picture or Critically Acclaimed television series.
