English 615 is a graduate level 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. Students will work on one collaborative group screenplay commission, with a goal for CEI production. Students will complete an individual 8-12 page spec screenplay that we will take through a process of planning, workshopping, and revision.
