About This Class

A music composer needs to master the musical notes and instruments before he compose for a film; without basic knowledge of colors a painter can't paint; likewise a screenwriter or playwright should require certain tools to express his/her vision clearly. It is a difficult skill to acquire. To build scenes, sequences, acts, and the whole story is not an easy job.

So the answer to this quest is learning principles, tools that are required for screenwriting or any kind of storytelling, because screenwriting is film making on paper. The screenwriters' job is to visualize the story on paper before making into a movie or any kind of visual grandeur.

The main objective of the course is to provide you with the industry secrets to enhance your screenwriting skills to excellence.
