FINAL DRAFT

Scriptwriting

June 1 - 5 | June 22 - 26

July 6 - 10 

CAMP DESCRIPTION

Without storytellers, we wouldn’t have all these amazing films, TV shows, and video games that we all connect with. A screenwriter’s job translates storytelling into a format that filmmakers, game designers and TV show runners can breathe life into. This virtual camp gives students the opportunity to learn each of these formatting techniques, taking their art of storytelling to the next level. Students will explore story design and structure, genre, audience, characterization and dialogue as they work to create a short film screenplay, write a spec script for a popular TV show, and put gaming knowledge to use by writing an interactive story. They will review peer’s screenplays, communicate effective feedback, receive personalized feedback, and finalize a polished piece. At the close of this camp, students will be equipped to begin producing entertainment and media scripts at home.
