Film Narrative

Want to learn how to read a script, storyboard a script, or write your own script? This class was made for you!

Film Narrative is an entry level course that will provide students with a fundamental understanding of screenwriting and storyboarding. Student will be introduced to the basics of film analysis, cinematic elements, script formation, and narrative structure.
