Sarah breaks down writing short film to it's most basic form.
very informative :D
I understand this classroom is four years old, but darn! I wish I could have been able to follow along with the worksheets and additional resources (they used to be on a DropBox account that is no longer available to view). Overall I think this class was easy to follow along with. Although I couldn't follow along the way the class was intended to be, I was still able to get a lot of great notes out of it and now I feel like I will be more structured when writing out my short script.
This class has helped me feel a little more prepared to write a screen play. I appreciate the way the teacher broke it down in a way where I didn't feel overwhelmed by terminology.
