This course is designed to develop scriptwriting skills for broadcast, web and corporate film making. All video production incorporates some form of scripting. Students will explore the many different ways a scriptwriter ties the project together. Students will learn to write scripts meant to be 'made' and not just read. Camera angles and cues will be studied. Creative writing skills will be emphasized in conjunction with the ability to communicate in words ‘visually’ and write ‘spatially’. Emphasis is placed on the traditional writing process (brainstorming, outline, treatment, draft and revision. Stylistically, our focus will be on the AV-2-column style. Topical areas include corporate communications, commercials/PSAs, documentary and feature-narrative.
