The filmmaking process, whether for film, television, or online content, begins with writing a screenplay. In this 10-week class, students will be introduced to the fundamental elements of screenwriting, including story structure, screenplay format, character creation, dialogue, and action writing. Through writing exercises and collaborative workshops, students will develop original ideas and complete one or more original short screenplays. Writing for film, online comedy content, and web-series will all be covered. The final class will encourage and guide students in how to self-produce their screenplays and get their stories seen by audiences at film festivals and online. What makes The Barrow Group School different from many other studios in NYC is that all of our teachers have gone through an intensive teacher training program with TBG co-Artistic Directors Seth Barrish and Lee Brock. So when your child takes a class with us, the teacher has trained for years at The Barrow Group in our specific approach.
This class is on-going, and can be taken multiple times.
