WHAT IS IT
What’s the spine of a story? And how can we convey the story we have in our minds in a screenplay? What are differences between a screenplay and other writing forms? How do we transform our wishes and thoughts into characters and actions? The aim of this course is that of writing a short screenplay of 5 minutes. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t a film enthusiast or you don’t know how to start making up a scene. You’re going to learn it on the way, step by step. Eventually you’re going to feel like making up your first set.
How does Classi-fy work?
You’ll have to follow a weekly timetable of appointments, which can be video lessons or notes to read. You’ll have deadlines to write and share your homework on Google Drive. You’ll read what your classmates write and you’ll be able to comment or receive feedback on what you write. You’ll be able to meet each other and talk about the lessons on the forum – ok, we already know you won’t only talk about that, but that’s part of the fun. Sometimes your teacher will post a video in which he publicly analyses the work of the class, but you’ll receive your personal evaluation in private.
What about the course timetable?
You’ll know it pretty soon: lessons will start in April and will last three months.
What are the technical skill necessary to take part to the course? Do I have to install a special program on my computer?
You’ll mainly work online, therefore all you need is the internet connection. We’ll use Google Drive to share documents.
What does it happen at the end of the course?
The class will come to Scuola Holden, in Turin, in order to attend the final lesson and collect your diploma. Eventually you’ll meet everyone and, if everything is right, you’ll have a beer together in Borgo Dora to celebrate.
