Intro to Writing for Screen
New York City Campus
Douglas Morse

This course explores the basic theory, form, art, and craft of writing for the screen—whether for a feature-length film screenplay, a film short, or a serialized television show. By examining popular screenwriting conventions and paradigms as well as rule-bending experiments in storytelling, students learn from both pillars of classic style as well as the cutting edge of the craft.


Digital Video Production
New York City Campus
Michele Beck

With digital cameras and computer editing, creating engaging, professional-quality moving images is within virtually everyone’s reach. Digital video is an exciting and powerful medium of expression, but knowing how to use the tools isn’t enough to enable you to create a coherent and articulate video project. This course can help artists in any genre create works that are both technically and conceptually sound. Students work toward this goal by learning digital video editing and using it to experience the power of editing as creative expression.


Selling Your Film
New York City Campus
Amotz Zakai

This course goes beyond the fundamentals of putting feature film ideas on paper, from the “hero’s journey” to the three-act structure, and teaches aspiring writers how to write a script that could actually be sold to a Hollywood studio, production company, or independent producer.
