The objective in the THE MIGHTY Screenwriter Master Class is to finish your screenplay outline/treatment and improve on your screenplay drafts by the end. Students who have previously taken THE MIGHTY receive alumni discounts. In the Master Class, we’ll focus on a different element of the craft every week. There’ll be weekly film-viewing assignment and in-class writing exercises. Participants will also submit scripts, treatments, and story pitches for in-class review. Class time is a combination of lecture, discussion, in-class writing exercises, professional script excerpts, and critiques of participants’ story outlines. Here is the syllabus week-to-week: - Screenplay story structure & plot development - Character development & advanced dialogue writing - Formatting and scene & action description & Mini-slug action writing - Scene and sequence construction, pacing, and transitions. - Advanced topics (i.e., tone, theme, imagery, voice)
