Undergraduate Catalog 2015-2016 [Archived Catalog] [Archived Catalog]
THIS COURSE IS OFFERED RESIDENTIALLY ONLY
The screenplay rewrite is the mature subjective examination of one’s work. In this course, students will learn how to evaluate a script based on specific principles of dramatic writing. The script will be analyzed and observations made by asking: Does the script maintain the stated theme? Are character arcs fully realized? Is the story structure well defined? Is there a clear hero objective throughout the story? Does the action of the story proceed with conflict and direction? “Rewriting is where the game is won or lost; rewriting is the essence of writing.” – William Zinsser, On Writing Well.
CINE 201, 202, 203, and the first three semesters of the Cinematic Arts cohort; Program Director waiver, if needed
