ENG 205 - Screenwriting


Character and Story. These are the building blocks of cinema; these are the building blocks of life. Through a close study of classic and contemporary films inside and outside of class, and by learning the basic components of writing and workshopping original scenes, this class will develop in the student an appreciation of the form, structure and content of writing for cinema. Students will develop a 12-15 original screenplay by the end of class and will, by doing so, develop the skills to be able to continue visual storytelling far beyond their time at Davidson.

Satisfies the Visual and Performing Arts requirement.
