Screenwriting Workshops

GRADES 6-8 and 9-12

Our Screenwriting workshops teach students about the film and television screenplay structure, as well as how to analyze dramatic strategies, learn and apply correct script format, and creatively engage in original scriptwriting. Our workshops place an emphasis on visualizing dramatic elements. Throughout the workshop, we focus on key topics using film clips to illustrate points and discuss dramatic and cinematic strategies.
