In Online Writing for TV & Film students familiar with the Second City model of comedy writing will explore visual writing, story structure and character in preparation for creating longer works for TV and film. The class will read existing scripts, view film and television selections, and write and workshop original ideas on a weekly basis.
Students should expect to spend 3-4 hours per week reading the lectures, completing the writing assignments, and responding to their classmates' work. Through instructor feedback and interactive discussion, each student will leave the course with a fleshed out prose description of their project, structural suggestions for moving forward, and character descriptions.
