Wednesdays 7-10pm, January 16 - March 6, 2013.
Do you have an idea or life experience that would make a super screenplay? Do you think in images? How many times have you said you were going to develop an idea into a move but either never got around to it or found yourself stumped by how to begin? What the heck is a slugline, a logline, and a memorable line? In this class, you will learn the alphabet of creating a dramatic film. Recommended (but not required) viewing: any of the movies in AFI's current Top 100 Films.
