Crafting Your Screenplay

This workshop is designed to guide participants through the process of developing a screenplay from concept to completion. Through a combination of lectures, group discussions, and hands-on exercises, participants will learn the essential elements of screenwriting, such as character development, plot structure, and dialogue. They will also receive feedback on their writing and have the opportunity to revise and refine their work.

To prepare for the workshop, participants will be asked to read and analyze a few pages of various produced screenplays, as well as complete writing assignments that will be reviewed in class. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a solid foundation for their own screenplay and a clear understanding of the screenwriting process.
