Writing the Short Film (EAS3128)

30 credits

Writing The Short Film is a practical module that teaches – in a hands-on way – the important principles behind any form of dramatic writing, but with specific reference to the short film. It requires no previous knowledge or experience, but those students who do best will already have a strong interest in drama and screen drama in particular. Short films are used as a training ground for the film and television industries and this module is designed to give students the craft skills necessary to write powerful film and television dramas of whatever length.
