LEARN HOW TO WRITE YOUR OWN SCREENPLAY
If the purpose of the film is to tell stories, then the screenwriter is the one who breathes
first life into the characters, worlds, and drama unfolding on screen.
In Screenwriting Camp students learn how to write their own screenplays.
This hands-on camp is designed for teens who are passionate about storytelling, whether they are interested in a future writing career, simply wish to improve writing skills, or want to explore something new. Campers are immersed in the craft and technical tools of dramatic film writing, with a lot of practical writing experience.
The final project can take the shape of a rough draft of a feature film, a draft of a shootable short, or an outline and treatment of a feature or TV project. The aspiring screenwriters learn an enormous amount in a short time and discover new ways to bring their thoughts to life on the page.
This is a first-week class in which students present a variety of film ideas and choose one to write for the rest of the course.
This is a student-driven class in which treatments, scenes, and outlines are evaluated and critiqued.
ELEMENTS OF SCREENWRITING
This course introduces students to the craft of screenwriting; from screenplay format to dialogue, structure, and exposition.
This course creates a visual map for your character’s emotional journey and your screenplay’s dramatic structure. Students learn how to chart their character’s internal conflicts and emotional transformation.
This class looks at the intricacies of feature-length screenwriting through the reading and screening of well-known films.
In this course, students learn about the elements of the feature film, from directing to cinematography, production design, and editing.
Students expand their understanding of the visual components of the screen story by shooting their own short scene.
This is a recurring course that provides writing time during class hours for students to work on scripts and assignments.
METHOD OF DELIVERY
All programs are based on the philosophy of «learning by doing».
I offer an intensive, hands-on, total-immersion approach to learning. The most effective way
for the students to master their chosen craft is to immediately start creating their
own work in a hands-on working environment.
LEADERSHIP & COLLABORATION
Through an intensive study of their craft, students learn skills that can be applied to any future endeavors. To become a successful artist, leadership and collaboration skills must be learned. Students can enhance their ability to engage others to work together effectively through the development of their projects.
Through writing, performance, and storytelling, students have an extraordinary opportunity to express their point of view and discuss their thoughts, ideas, and concerns.
Students leave camp with greater confidence, strength to freely express themselves and their individuality, and skills to effectively communicate their thoughts and ideas.
All programs encourage students to think outside the box. The challenges inherent in the visual and performing arts force students to develop creative solutions to achieve desired results. Students will find that this type of creative thinking can be applied to many types of challenges, whether artistic, academic, or professional.
There is an incredible amount of discipline required in all our camps — discipline to make quality films, learn the software, research and report relevant news topics, write screenplays, or explore and perfect the craft of performing a character. Students practice the art of discipline and focus on a craft that requires full dedication in order to achieve success.
