Writing the Character Journey from Comics to Film (2105LHS)

This course welcomes students from all backgrounds, and fields of study and those already in Creative Writing, drawing from examples from highly successful feature films, videos and television to better understand character, plot, setting and narrative in writing a performance script. For everyone who has ever watched a movie or a television show and thought "I could have done it better", this is the ideal creative writing course for you. A writing course for students across all forms of university study, and those already enrolled in a Creative Writing major who dream of the movies, wonderful characters and/or other forms of creative writing. The novel, short story and even comics have all made a significant contribution to scriptwriting and television. Just think The Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio, think J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter, the Marvel Comic Franchise Avengers: Infinity War, and the highly acclaimed Joker developed from DC comics. This course refines practical writing skills in the context of theoretical information together with current creative writing practice in developing ideas into film scripts based on character development and journey. Prerequisites: NIL Co-requisites: NIL Incompatible.
