Summer Screenwriting Workshop
Mason Film & Video Studies professors and guest faculty will help students learn how to build a strong foundation in fundamental screenwriting techniques for film, and to express their unique story ideas through character development, plot and dialogue. Students will present staged readings of their screenwriting projects, which may be used in the following Filmmaking Workshops! (Students who wish to participate in the Filmmaking Workshop along with this Screenwriting Workshop MUST register for both programs.)
