Class Starts January 25th, 2021
ENROLLMENT DEADLINE: JANUARY 20TH
Taught by produced screenwriter Tony DuShane, author of Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk and award winning screenwriter of the adaptation directed by Eric Stoltz.
This eight week course will guide students through the process of creating a screenplay starting with an idea and logline and ending with a solid outline by the end of the workshop. Each week we’ll cover topics like character, the three act structure, plot, and much more. Through the course we’ll deconstruct each act and their beats to thoroughly understand the structure of storytelling in a feature film.
ONLINE COURSE STRUCTURE:
This class is entirely asynchronous with weekly deadlines and there is plenty of interaction with Tony and your peers within Wet Ink, our dedicated online classroom.
