Are you curious about how filmmakers come up with their stories? In this interactive, family workshop, instructor Rebecca Wood Barrett will lead students and parents in brainstorming a simple story idea, and show how to translate it into a one-page screenplay. We’ll talk about the vital ingredients of screenwriting such as story, structure, character, dialogue, conflict, setting, action, and genre. Equipped with an understanding of these creative tools, students and parents will write a one-page screenplay, using the basic building blocks of the standard screenplay format (scene heading, action, and dialogue), and then entertain the group by reading the scripts out loud.
