The goal of this class is to analyze classic films in order to grasp how structure supports the narrative and helps the writer create a disciplined, soundly constructed, dramatic script. Emphasis will be on the relationship between character and plot, as well as identifying significant story points that drive the narrative forward. In addition to class exercises, students will apply what they learn to their own work in the following session.
