MPFV326 Autobiographical Screenwriting: Working With Your Life Story 3cr


This screenwriting workshop examines ways to use and explore autobiography as the basis for a short script. Students create works that are autobiographical or autobiography-inspired, working in a range of genres and formats, from narrative (i.e. autobiography-based fiction) to film-essay, video art, and hybrid forms. Throughout the semester we view work by filmmakers and video artists who draw from their life story in different ways. There will be readings, critical and creative short writing assignments, and a final script/project. Prerequisite: Script 1 (in FV or LA) or equivalent experience and permission of instructor.

Prerequisites: MPFV-235 or LALW-338
