Capstone: Bringing it all together

In this capstone course we will bring together and apply the five most important components of writing successfully for performance and the entertainment industries, across all the mediums we have covered: 1: Understanding story structure, dialogue, character and theme 2: Understanding how to work as your own producer with an entrepreneur’s mindset 3: How to create commercially viable scripts 4: How to anticipate audience reception 5: How to challenge yourself to work experimentally, and to write outside your comfort zone You will be asked to reflect critically on your experience as well as to refine your favourite piece of work from the course. We will look at best-practice career tips as well, and review one essential concept from each course.
