Fade In: Stories and Scripts
This two-week intensive introduces writer’s ages 15-18 to some of the secrets of telling stories for the screen. Working with professional writers you will get daily practice in the art of storytelling for the screen and turning those stories into finished scripts. Our textbook will be a handful of classic films that we will break down in class, discovering in them how scenes are made, how best to use action and dialogue, how character arcs work, and the power of creating subtext.
All, but not all, of the films, break down into three-act structures that we will examine carefully and put to use in our own writing. You will finish this camp with four written stories and two 10-page scripts ready for production.
The final day will culminate with the students reading their works in our Black Box theater space.
