Register now for this camp

When we think of our favorite movies, we often remember the actors, the directors, and the story that unfolds visually. But we sometimes forget that before the movie was directed and performed, it had to be written! In this introductory camp, you will learn how to tell a story visually, which includes creating a compelling narrative and tight dialogue. You will also learn screenwriting format and be introduced to professional screenwriting apps.
