IFP Summer Camps 2016: Screenwriting Boot Camp (ages 14-17)
Starts June 13
Monday–Friday, June 13–17, 12–4 pm
Learn the nuts and bolts of screenwriting. A portion of each day will be devoted to watching and discussing portions of great films that have a lot to teach about structure and what it means to write memorable and compelling stories for the screen. We’ll also spend time sharing our own freshly-written script pages with one another. We’ll have lots of fun, and by the end of the week, you’ll know the basics of screenwriting and lots about film and television. Best of all, you’ll complete a script for a short film!
