Walt knew that a strong story is the backbone of film and a strong script is a crucial part of ensuring that the story can be understood by the audience. In this class, we will look at writing conventions for scripts of both animated works and comics. Using writing exercises to develop characters, plot, and worlds, you will then create your own script for an animated film or graphic novel.

This class is intended for those interested in writing scripts and stories. It is not an animation or drawing class. No prior writing experience is needed. Typing skills recommended.
