MDST 4101 - Feature Film Writing I

In this, the first of a two-course sequence, students will learn the basic form of feature length screenwriting. Students will learn how to deepen plot, strengthen characters, and intensify dialogue. Learners will augment their narrative, visual voice through rigorous writing exercises, script study, scene study, workshops, and critiques, resulting in the development of a rough, first draft of a feature length screenplay. Outside writing, reading, and screening assignments are required. Offered alternating Fall semesters.

Prerequisite: MDST 3100 with a grade of B or higher
