Description: Do you love creative writing? Is your head full of stories trying to get out? Do you imagine movies and want to see them brought to life? Screenwriting for Teens can teach you how to write a movie and have fun doing it.
All films begin with a writer, a story, and a screenplay. We start with stories - where they come from and how you can make them your own. We tell stories in class, individually and working together. We look at what makes stories compelling and what stories make for good movies.
Next, we learn how to write scripts. Watching short films and scenes from famous movies, we see how screenplays are brought to life on the big screen. We write our own scripts and share them with each other.
Finally, during the last class, friends and family are invited to attend as we read from a selection of the best screenplays created in class.
