Intention (SMART Goal)
By January 28, as part of my team, I will explore the screenwriter’s skill pathway by aligning the screenplay with specific editing direction. I will use props to externalize character and use location to unify characters while heightening drama. I will use Cinemtaic Storytelling by Jennifer Van Sijll as a source for these techniques.
