Professor: Rani Crowe

English 310 is an introductory course focusing on short form screenwriting with an emphasis on dramatic writing that can be translated from page to screen. Students will complete writing exercises to build muscles in Visual Storytelling, Screenplay Format, Character and World Development, Genre, and Structure. Additionally, students will watch various styles of short films and media, read screenplays and other craft related readings. Students will build skills in analysis and critical response through group workshops. The course will culminate in a final 10-15 page screenplay that we will take through a process of planning, workshopping, and revision.
