This 8-week course will focus on the foundational elements of writing feature screenplays. Throughout the course, participants will work on developing a new script idea into an outline/treatment to help move their projects forward. The course consists of six online, live sessions with a lead instructor for presentations and small group breakout work; a one-on-one mentoring session focused on their project; and a guest presentation with a leading independent filmmaker. 

Previous guest presentations include case studies with Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) and Peter Sollett (Raising Victor Vargas), and writing workshops with Award-winning screenwriters Joan Tewkesbury and Bill Wheeler.
