SCREENWRITING 101

In this class, students will learn how screenplays are written, then get some practice in writing them. You’ll have a chance to write “minute movies” (just a page long), short screenplays (a few pages long), and scenes from full length movies. There will also be opportunities (for those who want to) to share your writing with the class and get some feedback. Seattle: UW campus

LET’S MAKE A MOVIE

Want to star in a movie, while learning how films are made? Here’s your chance! In this class, we’ll create and film a short movie, working together as a group. Everyone in the class who wants to, will be in the film. Important: If you are new to acting, take ACTING 101 before taking this course. You can take LET’S MAKE A MOVIE just for fun, or as part of our Acting for the Camera certificate program. Seattle: UW campus
