Course Overview

Welcome to Scriptwriting. In this course, we’ll discuss the basics of scriptwriting and show you how you can take any beneficiaries story and fit it into a story formula. The story formula we use is The Hero’s Journey, and it’s effective because it’s a story that we all experience in our own lives. The Hero’s Journey relates to all people across all cultures, and therefore is a perfect story structure to follow when telling a beneficiaries story to an audience worlds apart. This course will guide you through the formula and show you the questions you can ask your beneficiary to get the right answers to fill out the story structure.
