This class has been cancelled.
Students familiar with the Second City model of comedy writing will explore visual writing, story structure and character in preparation for creating longer works for TV and film. Using Blackboard, the class will read existing scripts, view film and television selections, and create and workshop original ideas. Through instructor and class feedback, each student will leave the course with a fleshed out prose description of their project, structural suggestions for moving forward, and character descriptions.
Prerequisite: One term of training with the Second City or instructor approval
