FMS 310  Basic Screenwriting

  The aim of this course is to introduce you to the craft of screenwriting,

  and to develop the creative writing skills necessary to help you start an

  original screenplay or teleplay. We will be primarily concerned with

  narrative structure and character development as key components in

  storytelling. Students will analyze canonical film and television scripts

  as examples, participate in writing exercises and workshops, and

  complete a treatment for a film, or show bible for a television series.
