We examine the nature of the short screenplay and the elements of screenwriting. Through exercises and assignments, students are acquainted with the building blocks of the script, the establishment of character, and accepted screenplay formats and acquire the knowledge necessary to complete a successful short film. Students can expect to complete a screenplay for a seven- to ten-minute film.
