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."

Film Analysis

To excel at writing screenplays or TV scripts, you must write regularly and read scripts from a writer’s perspective. 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 the best in the business?
 
Each week, students focus on an aspect of scriptwriting craft in relation to a specific movie or TV episode. Like works of fine art, these scripts are analyzed from various angles as their secrets are revealed. (The reading consists of a mixture of film and TV scripts, all of which are provided.)
 
If you seek to elevate your scriptwriting, let those who have been there show the way.
