Instructor: Juliana Roth
Using the classic three act dramatic structures to map out a feature length script, this course takes us deeper in understanding what drives our characters in film using Hauge’s Six Stage Plot Structure. With these tools, we discuss how to visually map inner and outer journeys for our characters, inventing scenes and scenarios singular to our worlds. In doing so, we explore how to write character-driven films of all lengths by looking at samples of successful web series, TV pilots, features, and short films. By the end of the class, you will have a rough outline of a story you’d like to write, ideas of where your plot turning points might fall, and a sense of the next steps in bringing your vision to the screen.
This workshop will take place virtually via Zoom.
$60 General; $10 Camden residents
