In an era of Youtube, TikTok, Instagram, and social ads, it’s easy to overlook the importance of screenwriters in creative media. “Writing a Short Film,'' the second module in our From Story to Script course, will have students develop their original ideas for a short film as they generate a premise, plot, and characters.  This course will be heavily workshop-based, focusing on direct feedback between instructor and students.
