Section 2: Monday and Wednesday 5:00-6:15 PM

Professor: Rani Crowe

English 410 is an advanced workshop in screenwriting.  Students will complete 2 short individual screenplays of approximately 10-15 pages each, and one group written screenplay of 8-12 pages. Students will complete screenwriting exercises, view films, read screenplays and other craft related readings.  

Building on concepts developed in English 310, emphasis in this class will be given to more advanced work in Structure, Dialogue, Character Development, Outlining, Workshopping, Revision, and Pitching a Screenplay.

One of the major goals of this course (especially Spring Semester sections) is to provide short scripts for production in Ball State’s Cinema Entertainment Immersion program (the CEI).  Therefore, some emphasis will be given to the development of short screenplays suitable for production here at BSU.
