Course Description

FMS 198: SCREENWRITING
Fall 2017

Bad (screen)writing is easy as pie; mediocre (screen)writing is a waste of everyone’s time; good screenwriting requires the mastering of a precise, learned craft— a good story, well told, that anticipates the camera-eye, inspires actors, and creates a new world. The cardinal sin in screenwriting is to be boring: we’re here to tell taut, moving, exciting, emotionally compelling stories that are the templates for films— the world’s most lively art-form.  Learn the fundamentals of visual storytelling; write film.
