Visual Storytelling: Screenwriting|
Since watching movies (good ones) is so easy and pleasurable, screenwriting is a medium that everyone's uncle thinks they can do. But anyone who has had to read an amateur screenplay knows different. This is a writing course that will start from ground zero: separating the screenplay from other forms, e.g. the play and the novel, and ground students in visual language as the basis of the medium. How do we write in pictures?
