Graduate subject - Writing - 400 level


This subject explores the creative and complex storytelling potential of the cinematic image. It examines the relationship between the eye of the camera and the written text and offers students an opportunity to investigate both sound and image as metaphor while developing an existing piece of screenwriting. It explores adaptation from a literary source as well as storytelling possibilities opened up by digital technology and contemporary experiments in narrative structure. Students with an existing treatment or draft may develop a feature or short feature. Students with a short drama may develop a shooting script.
