MDC681P Screenwriting II Practicum
Lead Faculty: Ms. Bettina Moss MFA
In this independent "studio practicum" taken concurrently with MDC 681, students develop a second "polished draft" of an original screenplay guided by critical feedback provided by the instructor. The original screenplay will receive a minimum of two individual critical reviews.
- Demonstrate knowledge of the underlying principles of rewriting a screenplay, including (but not limited to) the three-act structure, advancing dramatic or comedic conflict, refining dynamic characters, and telling a story visually.
- Through critical analysis and in a formal, graduate level essay, reflect upon the experience of rewriting the screenplay.
- Participate in a consultation with the professor regarding the rewrite.
