BUSE 268 Script Analysis
Script Analysis is a 15-week course designed to review the elements of Western drama; foster among students a deeper understanding of the screenwriting process; help students appreciate the ways in which a script is reworked and revised in preparation for filming; assist students in developing critical skills in analyzing stories; introduce students to the role of various development/production departments (known as Concentrations at Columbia College Chicago), and how each determines the merits of a script and prepares it for filming; explore the various skills necessary to analyze scripts from the perspective of each of these departments (Concentrations); and provide students with several opportunities to apply those skills most closely aligned with their own filmmaking interests to a script(s) under study.
As a result, students will better be able to understand the different interpretations and demands made on a screenplay as well as the processes required before and during the making of the film based on said screenplay. Students will be able to present their assignments, ideas and analyses in a professional manner.
