ABOUT THE COURSE

Writing a short film script requires the same skill set as writing a feature script. Both formats require an understanding of narrative structure, dialogue, conflict, character, screenplay format, visual storytelling, and the importance of development. When it comes to short film scripts, however, writers must tell their stories in a short amount of time and make each minute count. Which is why learning to write a short film script is one of the best ways to learn the craft of screenwriting before moving on to feature length scripts.

With this in mind, this course is designed to take you through the mechanics of short film scriptwriting and will cover the questions below:

- How to format your script.
- What makes a great idea for a short film.
- How to turn this great idea into a compelling script.
- How to set up the world quickly.
- How to use visual metaphor and motif.

Using samples of successful short films and exploring basic narrative structure, point of view, theme, protagonist, character development, tone and visual storytelling, you'll have all the building blocks necessary to create a great short film script.

At the end of the course you will be invited to pitch your own ideas and discuss them with your classmates and the tutor to receive feedback.
