Workshop members write scripts for films (including shorts), plays, or TV, creating characters, conflict, dialogue, and stories that engage an audience. As models for writing, we discuss a small number of plays and films by dramatists such as David Lynch, Adrienne Kennedy, the Coen brothers, Yasmina Reza, Charlie Kaufman, Sofia Coppola, Quentin Tarantino, Caryl Churchill, Diablo Cody, and Christopher Nolan. However, this course's focus is on workshopping students' original scripts. Completed dramas will be submitted for publication in Berklee’s FUSION Magazine: Global Art, Words, and Music.
