Intro to Screenwritng Camp for High School

Online Camp

This summer, teenagers can let their creative imaginations run wild while learning the craft of screenwriting. In this two-week screenwriting course, taught by RTF grad students at UT, campers will study scenes from screenplays; watch and discuss movie clips and short films; learn about character, setting, dialogue, and structure; and write screenplays. They will collaborate with other creative teens as well as write their own original short scripts.
