Screenwriting 1/Create Your Own Hybrid:

In this class, students have the option of pursuing either a Screenplay or a Create Your Own project.  The only caveat is that the first class will be an hour longer in order to properly instruct students on how to approach both. See below for information on both of these classes.

Create Your Own:

Students may choose to you  work on an outline for a one-person show or a half hour comedy.  Students may also choose one of the many vehicles for the internet, which they will complete!

Screenplay 1:

Students will take a screenplay logline and build it into a 5-10 pages outline.

No more than 8 students!
