Screenwriting Advanced

September 28, 2017 — December 7, 2017

Instructor: Randall Jahnson


Start, finish, or resume your feature screenplay or television series pilot in this small and intensive class setting. Through lecture and instructor feedback, you will move beyond the basics to engage in the heavy lifting of plot construction, character development, and visual storytelling. Learn to write like a director directs! Students will take aim on completing a first draft by the end of class – or emerge with a solid game plan for achieving one.


Topics include:

Establishing story parameters

Choreographing action


Character revelation and behavior

Point of View



Effective use of flashbacks, dreams, and montages
