Next Actor Studio
FROM SCRIPT TO SCREEN
It all starts with a good story that can be adapted to the screen.
Learn to write visually and create a script from scratch. Structure your acts, dialogues and transitions. Take home your bullet points and author your screenplay in a professional and creative manner.
Due to the current stay-at-home order, all our classes are being held via Zoom, which means students from any part of the globe can join us. Students are also able to take advantage of the time spent without any distraction, to complete their scripts during the 3 weeks of screenwriting class.
Curriculum includes comparing film scripts, learning to structure the script, tempo and rhythm, dialogue and transition, characters, plots and elements of a screenplay. Students learn to analyze movie scenes and distinguish writing techniques of different screenwriters.
Students can read out their scenes in class for inputs from teachers and other students. Upon completing the screenplay, students are also able to hold a table read of their entire script.
Several of our screenwriting students have collaborated with acting students to create a film out of their creative work and have received awards at film festivals, both in Houston and internationally.
