Screenwriting Online
How do you write a screenplay that might get bought by studio or a production company? Write a compelling script thatís impossible to stop reading, vividly cinematic, properly formatted, and realistically produce-able.

Our screenwriting courses will help you meet these criteria, and also guide you in creating characters, building plots, shaping scenes, sharpening dialogue, and, of course, peddling your script. Whether you seek to write big Hollywood movies or low-budget indies, weíll show you what it takes to get in the screenplay game.

Advanced
Screenwriting | 10-week Workshop
 
Focusing on developing projects and receiving feedback from the instructor and classmates, this course helps students sharpen their skills and work toward completion of a saleable screenplay. Writers often repeat Screenwriting II to continue their projects.
  • Work toward completion of a feature-length screenplay
  • Lectures and exercises that expand on basics of screenwriting craft
  • Engage in rewriting
  • Present work for in-depth critique (two times)

Gotham actually has two separate programs for Screenwriting II. They complement each other, and many students take both programs, but it makes no difference which one is taken first. If you take one program, then enroll again for Screenwriting II, Gotham will make sure you are placed in the other program

Prerequisite: Screenwriting I or the equivalent.
