    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Thompson approaches screenwriting from the perspectives of an actor and a director as much as he does a writer, which makes the course engaging and insightful for all types of film students. The course is also driven as much by the students as by the instructor; a lot of class time is devoted to peer feedback on pieces written throughout the course.

    Course highlights:

    As an introduction to screenwriting, we learned about the importance of the plot being driven by action and behavior instead of dialogue since film is a visual medium. We also were given a variety of ways to write, whether by improvising scenes or observing others.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Especially in the summer, be prepared to work quickly. Through the course of three weeks, we wrote one five minute screenplay and one 10 to 12 minute screenplay, which was rigorous, but not impossible if you are committed to the craft.
