About this Course
It’s time to write — really write. In this third and final course, you’ll learn how to put it all together, transforming your foundational skills and virtual index cards into a finished version of your screen story. You’ll build a compelling first act that introduces audiences to a relatable — though not necessarily likable — focal character and that creates a pivot point from which to launch your story. You’ll follow up with a second act revealing that all positive change is accompanied by almost insurmountable sacrifice. The dramatic third act enables your audience to enjoy the journey while gleaning insights on the human condition, for better or worse.
