Course Description

CDM 198: Writing with Pictures
Fall 2018

This course introduces students to the practice of screenwriting. We examined the classical three-act structure in the various traditional fiction genres. We develop character, dialogue, story arc etc. However, we go further and experiment with alternative  narrative structures. We create styles of “writing” with images and music that break the conventional standard of what Peter Watkins refers to as the “mono-form”. At the end of the quarter, we will have screenplays that we can present to the UC Davis community, either in the form of readings or as so-called “filmic” screenplays  that we can screen. With the use of found footage or self made images we will also created film collages to accompany or replace the written form.
