55-4327L Adaptation in L.A.


This course requires that students develop a completed work of prose (novel, short story, magazine article, etc.) into an expanded outline, then into a detailed treatment for the screen. The outlining process will involve breaking down the prose, streamlining it into visual and essential pieces of dialogue, then registering the outline at the WGA (which will be a stop on one of our tours). A professional story editor/development executive will then collect an outline from each student, do coverage, then have an individual meeting with each student to discuss vital story points. Based on feedback from the story editor, each student will revise his/her outline, then develop it into a full-length treatment (10-20 pages). Each student will pitch his/her treatments to development executives/producers at the end of the five-week program.
