Odyssey Workshop: Story Development and Screenwriting
From January to May 2022, the Odyssey Program at Cleveland State University’s School of Film & Media Arts offers a series of one-day workshops for high school students (aged 13-18) interested in film and media arts.
Encompassing everything from idea generation, story structure and plotting, characterization, revisions and final edits, and more, story development is an essential part of the process in the creation of any successful screenplay. Take the first step in translating your ideas to the screen with this activity-packed workshop that introduces strategies and techniques of the trade.
