SCR670P Development/Production Practic

Lead Faculty: Ms. Bettina Moss M.F.A.

Course Description

This onsite "studio practicum" taken concurrently with SCR675 covers the various stages of project development including pitching projects, how creative executives work with writers, and what happens once a project is "greenlit" and enters the production/writing phase. Students learn firsthand from professionals in the film, television and/or transmedia business.

Learning Outcomes

  • Analyze and refine the various stages of the script development process based on workshops with industry professionals
  • Deconstruct how the needs of various studios and/or production entities determine what happens once a project is "greenlit."
  • Reflect upon the two week intensive residency experience and relate this to the student's own creative process in a cohesive, well thought out reflective journal.
