Full course description

This one-day class will meet ONLINE on Saturday from 10 am - 4 pm eastern time.

One of the best ways to organize documentary research, explore new ideas, and accurately plan for the unexpected is to write a script. In this workshop, students will learn the basics of documentary script writing—including conceptual and practical theory behind script construction—the role of story in documentary filmmaking, and proper A/V script formatting. Students will also use widely available script writing software in practical exercises on translating their ideas to screen.
