Student Quotes
"A wonderful course that teaches how to watch movies in a new way and is also instructive if you want to begin writing screenplays yourself."
- Emunah Herzog
 Registered Nurse
"Before the course, I had many ideas on screenwriting that I had acquired from reading books and attending lectures, but they remained more or less abstract notions. This course was invaluable in helping me attain a more concrete and illuminating understanding of the craft. It feels like someone has flipped the light switch on."
- Raj Mahtani

Film Analysis

To excel at writing screenplays or TV scripts, one must do more than simply enjoy the shows. The writer needs to study movies and TV. Painters typically learn their craft by studying the work of masters, and most accomplished scriptwriters do the same. Who better to show you the ropes of great screenwriting and TV writing than those who created such works as The Graduate, Thelma and Louise, and Breaking Bad? Who better to inspire you to new heights?

In this course, you will learn the craft of screenwriting and TV writing by studying great movies and TV shows. Each week focuses on an aspect of scriptwriting craft in relation to a specific movie or TV episode watched (or read) by the class. Like works of fine art, these films and episodes are analyzed from every angle in a way that is instructive, inspiring, and entertaining.

If you seek to excel at scriptwriting, let those who have been there show the way.
