There will be two hours of lectures focusing on the theoretical aspects and two hours of practical workshops where the students will apply these theories or concepts to their projects. Students will learn the rules and techniques that are used by industry professionals. They will learn to write loglines and treatments of their ideas and turn them into projects. The screenwriting methods and formulas will be explained through the concept of character. Each lesson will focus on one aspect of character that illuminates a general rule. The focus on character will make it easier for students to apply abstract screenwriting concepts to their projects.
