Class description

VISUAL STORYTELLING: WRITING SCREENPLAYS FOR THE BIG SCREEN, THE SMALL SCREEN AND THE REALLY SMALL SCREEN Storytelling is rapidly changing and evolving from reading a story aloud out of a book, to listening to a radio show, to going to a movie theater, to the audience actively controlling the direction of a story. In addition, we access our stories on a number of different platforms. We can read a book on our telephone. We not only can watch a movie whenever it is convenient for us, but also can make a movie with a point-and-shoot digital camera and get millions of people to watch our movie.
