The Department of Cinema and Digital Media presents the CDM
Lecture Series, a four-event series featuring presentations
by acclaimed and award-winning filmmakers, artists, scholars and
curators. The series is hosted and coordinated by
Professors Fiamma Montezemolo and Andrew Smith.
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”.
