Online Class | Screenwriting Basics

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

Introductory | Screenwriting is a unique art form that demands a passionate understanding of its rules, conventions, and flexibilities. Over tree jam-packed hours, we’ll examine the essentials of the screenwriter’s art on the page and screen via a variety of movies such as The Favourite and Moonlight, and episodes of shows like Mad Men and Russian Doll.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
