1-week online screenwriting course

In this 1-week online screenwriting course, you will learn about five primary archetypes — Protagonist, Nemesis, Attractor, Mentor, Trickster — which you can use as tools to develop your story’s characters into multidimensional individuals, each with their own distinct connection to your story.

  • Learn a story development approach that will enable you to write a script where the plot emerges from the characters.
  • Workshop your story through writing assignments aimed at identifying the respective narrative functions of all your major characters.
