About the Course
Have you ever watched a film and said afterwards, “I’d like to have a go at writing a screenplay but where do I begin?” This course will equip you with a writer’s toolbox filled with the basics: how to lay out a script professionally; how to structure your screenplay; the do’s and don’ts of writing compelling dialogue; and breathing life into your characters. You’ll pick up important film terms and techniques – and get to watch lots of films! By the end of the course you’ll not only have acquired the nuts and bolts of screenwriting but you’ll also have penned your own 15-minute screenplay.
The Open College of the Arts is a non-profit educational charity offering arts education through open and flexible distance learning methods.
