Odyssey: Introduction to Screenwriting for Film and Television

Attendees will leave this course with a good sense of how movies and television shows are written and what elements go into making successful scripts. Because writing for television and movies is such a prescriptive medium, this course will give attendees what they need to know in order to write a properly formatted and properly structured script. But the course goes beyond the basics by using actual scripts, movie clips, and other pertinent concrete examples to explore narrative and how the prescriptive structure of scripts can be used to the writer's advantage by providing a formula and a frame to accomplish good storytelling in screenwriting.
