Weeks 1-7 on campus
Spring Break:  London! (total cost of trip $2,295)
London is the city that has been home to film & TV for over a hundred  years.  It looms large in our imaginations with its spy thrillers, comedies, science fiction and dramas.  It's a vibrant city that's easily accessible to American students.  This course will familiarize the student with British film & TV from the screenwriter's point of view.  After a seven week study in Oswego of selected British films and television programs, the student will then travel to London for Spring Break where they will be engaged with not only the London locations but also with some of the screenwriters.

CRW 411-Screenwriting guru Robert McKee wrote: “Secure writers don't sell first drafts. They patiently rewrite until the script is as director-ready, as actor-ready as possible. Unfinished work invites tampering, while polished, mature work seals its integrity.” In this course you'll take the first draft of your screenplay to the next level.  Pre-requisites:  CRW 201 and CRW 301 and a completed first draft of a feature film script.
