Screenwriting Workshop: Features I

 

WorkshopsFeaturesWritingS1

Online Workshop

Do you have a great idea for a feature film? Many have great ideas; only few craft them into screenplays. In this workshop, learn screenwriting fundamentals as you develop an original feature film idea. You’ll create a pitch, logline, treatment, outline, and first act. While no previous screenwriting experience is required, please come prepared with ideas for a feature film. Having completed a college-level English course is also recommended.

Take either as a standalone course or continue on with Feature Screenwriting II.
