This class is in the process of being rescheduled due to a schedule conflict. We'll keep you posted!

How often have you got to the movies and thought you could have written it better? Or maybe you've had an idea brewing in your head for the next great blockbuster. Or do you want to make an indie film about an important issue? This class will teach you how to write a screenplay (a completely different type of endeavor than a novel.). You'll learn the structure, style and pacing of a film; how to get people interested and how to copyright protect your work. This is a 6 week class.

This class is for ages 15 and up.

Supplies Needed:

laptop - paper and pen can be used but it is much harder and can't be submitted to studios without being typed up.

Access to Netflix or Amazon Prime

Registration will be automatically canceled if a payment is not made within 15 minutes of registration.
