    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is great for any aspiring filmmaker. Every film starts with a script. Without a strong story, it's very difficult to make a movie that's worthwhile. Even if you don't want to write, this class provides an understanding of how good stories work and how they're constructed, knowledge which any filmmaker can take and improve their craft with.

    Course highlights:

    The assignments in this class gave me specific, challenging goals to work toward (e.g. write a short, adapt a short story, write a TV pilot) while allowing me creative freedom over what I wrote about. Also, much of the class is workshopping yours and others' writing, which can be kind of intimidating, but getting and giving feedback is invaluable and helps you improve.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read a lot. Not only are you given scripts of produced films to read, but you'll be reading the work of some of your peers and providing feedback on a weekly basis.
