About this course:

Dialogue may seem to be the easiest and most fun aspect of screenwriting (look at all those pages fly by, and with so much white space!), yet it's often the most difficult thing for the aspiring screenwriter to do well. Great dialogue is a vital vehicle for developing character, enhancing plot, and speaking to theme, among its many uses. This course explores all of dialogue's functions in depth, and provides you with the pragmatic skill set that will make your dialogue more effective and make it snap, crackle, and pop on the page. Through writing exercises, analysis of screenplay pages and classic clips from both features and TV, and a dialogue diary that will help you develop an ear for good conversation, you sharpen and hone your dialogue prowess, and you put your new skills to work on your own projects, both present and future.
