Course Code: HCCC 250
Academic Year: 2017-2018
In this course, students hone the comic narrative techniques learned in HCCC 304. Students study feature film structure, including Blake Snyder's 15-Point Beat Sheet, and structure theory to films, such as The Ring and Groundhog Day. There is a continued emphasis placed on understanding story, character and plot devices. Each student creates and writes an original short film, show bible, 22-minute half hour or short story. These projects are written through a development phase that mirrors work a writer would do with a story editor.
