During the lectures and workshops over both semesters you will be discussing and practising a number of approaches to the following building blocks of dramatic screenwriting: subject, story, structure, plot, character, dialogue, narrative devices, presentation and format.
Students will have ample opportunity to develop their own story idea, from initial premise to full online stage. Lectures will provide an ever-increasing collection of techniques that will help students to re-evaluate and improve their work over the two semesters of this course.
TF20220 wil also serve to introduce students to the workings of the film and television industry from a writer's perspective. the course will outline what is expected of a professional writer.
As well as working in detail with a number of short films from my own collection, we'll also be examining techniques used in the following generally available films among others:
The Usual Suspects
The 39 Steps
