Learn the fundamentals of screenwriting to increase the odds of getting your script read. This class covers key elements of screenwriting, including story structure, character development, dialogue, and exposition. We’ll talk about how Hollywood thinks (to the extent that anyone knows how Hollywood thinks), and the class will also be encouraged to submit a story outline or the first ten pages of a screenplay for class critique. The main focus is writing the commercial screenplay, but the elements discussed will be relevant to most good storytelling.

Michael Cordell has been writing screenplays for over twenty years. He has sold three screenplays to Hollywood studios, one of which was produced into a feature film starring Harvey Keitel. He is also a novelist represented by The Harold Ober Agency in New York.
