Learn the foundational elements of writing a comedy screenplay with an accomplished screenwriter as your guide. In this live, online course, you will develop a premise into a treatment that can be used to write your first draft. These eight weeks will cover character arcs, comedy structure, situations, motivations, set pieces, and the different types of comedy. Sessions include presentations, discussion, and interactive exercises. The course concludes with a one-on-one mentoring session focused on your project.
The course will be held live in our virtual classroom. All sessions are recorded for registered participants who are unable to attend live.
