New Screenwriting Course by a Cape Breton indie filmmaker

Whenever someone asks me, "Kenn, how do I get into filmmaking?" My answer is always the same: "Write a great script. Not a good script; not one that just needs a little work or a few tweaks... it has to be great. Once you have the great script, gather up your friends then go out and shoot it."

Okay, the shooting part is a little more complicated than that, but a few dedicated friends, a camera, good audio and a solid plan is all you really need to get started... that, and a great script. But how do you write a great script?

The Fundamentals of Screenwriting and Story Structure is a new video training series created from the trenches of low and no-budget indie filmmaking by Cape Breton indie filmmaker, Kenn Crawford. The course includes:

  • 3 1/2 hours of on-demand video
  • 15 articles
  • a downloadable, 34-page workbook with practice exercises and online resources

This course will teach you what you really need to know to get your filmmaking ideas out of your head and on the written page as a properly formatted screenplay.

What you will learn:

  • How to develop believable characters that the audience can relate to
  • How to write realistic dialog
  • Screenplay formatting
  • You'll learn about Action, Suspense, Drama & Conflict
  • Screenplay elements
  • Where to find ideas
  • Basic filmmaking principals so you can write a screenplay that can be shot by low and no-budget filmmakers, and so much more.

Excellent work, Ken. I'm a big fan of the Udemy format. You're the first person in the region that I'm aware of that has created a Udemy course. It's a great way to share your knowledge.

Thank you very much. I enjoy teaching so Udemy sounded like a great way to do that. I'm currently working on my 3rd Udemy course - this one will be on how to create a professional sounding audiobook. The 1st course I created was about how to use sites like Kijiji, Ebay, Facebook groups and others to sell new and used items without paying for facebook ads. Here is the link to that course: http://bit.ly/2F6Bavt Thanks again.
