Aaron Sorkin Teaches Screenwriting Review

0/100 ratings

From writing his first screenplay on cocktail napkins to winning an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for penning ‘The Social Network,’ winner of 2 Golden Globes, 4 Emmy’s, 1 BAFTA award, and many more, his students will learn how to write riveting screenplays that sell. With 35 comprehensive and easy to understand lessons, Sorkin teaches how to master each step of the writing process be it for Film, Television, or Stage. His trademark long passage monologues, dialogue that has best been described as rapid-fire, coupled with Director Thomas Schlamme’s long duration walk and talk camera moves, is an art form in itself. As the camera travels the set, different characters enter and exit the scene on one continues camera shot. Sorkin believes discovering the driving mechanism that moves your script forward is a key ingredient in storytelling.

His classes speak to character development, the suitability of a story idea for TV or Film, the importance of research and how it can make the difference between a bad and a good script. Other hi-lights in Sorkin’s course include lessons on Writing Habits, The Audience, Story Arcs, and a slew of practical, informative workshops, and exercises. With screen credits that include Charlie Wilson’s War, The American President, A Few Good Men, Moneyball, Steve Jobs and his award-winning Oscar for The Social Network, ‘Aaron Sorkin Teaches Screenwriting’ is more than impressive. It’s one of the best of its kind.

Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you’re a director. Everything after that you’re just negotiating your budget and your fee.
