Our instructors are award-winning industry professionals who currently work at the top of their field while guiding and mentoring students to the highest standards of professional excellence. Graduates of this program will have the ability to define the components and structures common to a variety of script format and be able to develop a writing schedule and work within it to create measured content within specific deadlines and timeframes. They will be able to construct work schedules to ensure deliverables and timelines are met and acquire skills that permit them to generate creative ideas on a daily basis, navigating and overcoming “writer’s block” and similar creative obstacles. Most importantly, they will graduate having written a series of spec scripts for film, television, and movies of the week. The 12-month Screenwriting for Film & TV diploma program empowers students to take their ideas from concept to fleshed-out reality, harness their creative abilities, write at a professional level, and know how to effectively market their scripts. Taught fully online through live instruction, in a virtual classroom setting, this program will have you interacting with classmates and instructors on a daily basis from anywhere in the world to get your scripts to levels you never dreamt possible. But becoming a great writer is only half the battle. We’ll also provide you with the essential business know-how required to write for a living. Through practical hands-on work, deadline-driven projects, and regular critique from fellow screenwriters, graduates of this program will leave with both experience writing in a variety of formats and the business savvy required to make a living in the screenwriting industry.
Our online classes are held over Zoom meetings. Students will be required to download the application or access Zoom through the web. Further instructions for accessing the classes will be shared with registered students before the first class.
