6-Day Hands On Screenwriting Refresher Course

Screenwriting Refresher Course

Our Screenwriting Refresher Course is a hands-on 6-day class designed to introduce students to the art and craft of digital filmmaking. The workshop is an excellent way to learn the language of cinema and the tools of filmmaking. Being a project-based course, each student writes their own short film with the best screenplay chosen for group production.  Students will then be assigned to create a short fiction screenplay to be produced into a short film. Both screenplay and short film will be assessed. 

The interactive course is hands-on geared to developing filmmaking skills.  The Screenwriting Refresher Course will cover the basics of writing, producing, directing, cinematography and editing. 

Students will have access to filmmaking equipment and edit their films using Adobe Premiere Pro. At the end of the workshop, students will screen their films at the Thursday Film Club in front of their peers, friends, and family.

This Screenwriting Refresher Course is 6-day, full time.
