This unit introduces the student to the fundamental building blocks of screenwriting with a focus on the art of story creation. From the conception of the seed idea, the structuring of a storyline, to the development of a treatment, this unit considers the principle that skilful story making is the indispensable foundation of a successful script. Students are expected to participate in workshop exercises, analysis of films and stories, and produce a volume of creative writing culminating in the submission of a detailed short screenplay.
