Instructor: Caitlin Durante
In this class, students will learn how to develop a story and write a script (5-10 pages) for a short comedy film. The course covers comedic premise, story structure, characterization, dialogue, format, and other script mechanics. Each student’s script will be workshopped in class, and students will receive constructive feedback on their draft from their classmates and instructor.
