8-Week Screenwriting

The New York Film Academy has distilled the essential elements from the world's best screenwriting programs to create a super-intensive screenwriting workshop. It is designed for individuals with little or no screenwriting experience who are ready, willing, and able to work and learn within a fast-paced, high pressure, focused environment. The intensive Eight-Week daytime course meets Monday through Friday for classes and writing labs. Students must budget additional daily and weekend hours to write.

After many years of being taken for granted, screenwriters are now recognized as being as important as directors in making films. It has become a cliché that "you can make a bad movie with a good screenplay, but you can't make a good movie without a good screenplay." However, all the hype about screenplays selling for over a million dollars has led many people to imagine it as a quick and easy way to become rich and famous. Of course, the opposite is true.
