ENGL 261 - Writing for Stage and Screen I: Storytelling

Credits: Three (3)
This workshop-style course focuses on the art and craft of dramatic writing. By first examining dramatic works of literature as well as cinematic screenplays, students will learn and practice style and techniques that are geared towards composition for a visual medium, whether that be in theatre or film. Then, students will compose and workshop their own original story outline that will become either a short 10-minute play or screenplay of a short 10-minute film. Students will then have the opportunity to either stage their short play or shoot their short film using their iPads.
