Instructor Statement:

If you've ever really loved a moment in a film, it's because somebody originally got it right on the pages of the screenplay. In my courses, we venerate the unsung hero of the film industry, the screenwriter, as we learn all about how to become one. We look at great film moments, characters and battles. We analyze structure, study the craft and appreciate the art. And most importantly, we give you the tools, support and guidance that can help you craft your ideas into a screenplay, so that other people can love the moments that you put into your film.
