Script Analysis
Script Analysis

Whether you are a writer, a director, or a producer, an understanding of story structure and dramatic principles is essential. In-depth analysis of a screenplay’s storyline, characters, dialogue, images, and theme reveals a wide range of narrative techniques and storytelling styles, from Hollywood to independent and everything in between. Film Production Certificate students are required to register for the corresponding CT lab.

  • Students gain the ability to analyze any film script and apply that knowledge to their own screenwriting.
