Pen to Print: Screenwriting Classes
Session Nine: Film Dialogue
Understanding how to write sparkling dialogue for the screen that leaps off the page:
- How film dialogue differs significantly from novel and play dialogue
- Bringing character and setting into your dialogue
- How good dialogue moves the plot swiftly along
This 10-month course is aimed at anyone new to Screenwriting and takes participants back to the humble beginnings of Cinema to explore the very essence of what Film is and what it can do.
Writer and Screenwriting lecturer Lucy Kaufman examines some of the most important concepts in writing for the screen. Lucy encourages aspiring screenwriters to delve into their own human resources in order to create visual stories, scenes, plots and characters that will work well on screen, and will have a powerful emotional impact on a cinema audience.
Introducing basic film language and how to format a screenplay on the page, the workshops combine analysis of film clips and scripted screenplays with practical written exercises and discussion.
Please note there is a supporting Google Classroom for this course and the direct link to join can be found in confirmation email under the Additional information section.
