Every great film project – whether it’s a movie, television episode, or webcast – starts with a good script. A well-written script provides the emotional core and narrative structure that allow the production to shine. It’s often said that you can make a bad movie with a good screenplay, but you can’t make a good movie with a bad screenplay. At the Science Film Academy’s Screenwriting School we take that to heart.

The Science Film Academy boasts a unique curriculum that encourages learning by doing. Throughout their time at the Science Film Academy’s Screenwriting School students will write and workshop scripts in a variety of different genres and styles. From the very first day students will be behind the keyboard, learning to transform their ideas into structured scripts.

In addition, screenwriting students have the unique opportunity to work with fellow screen writing, film making, and acting students in developing and bringing a script to life in a finished film, providing each student with extensive experience in going through every step of the film making process as it relates to screen writing. Furthermore, students learn the art of pitching their screen plays to help ensure they are prepared to realize their professional goals once they complete the Academy’s Screen writing School.


The Science Film Academy’s Screenwriting School offers a number of different programs, ranging from short-term screenwriting workshops to full-fledged degree programs. Depending on the student’s screenwriting program, he or she can expect to take some to most of the following courses:
