Writing for Screen and Stage
This programme helps students develop the writing skills essential for the screen industry and the theatre; students explore the art of storytelling, the Aristotelian origins of drama, narrative structure, character function and creation, the exploitation of arena, decisions on location and key narrative tricks and devices; they also learn how to convert ideas into a saleable product, and how to deal with relevant legal and financial issues; students who choose to specialise in screen will finish by completing a 2-hour feature film screenplay; students who specialise in theatre will write a full-length play/performance text.
