The Northwest Film Center has a Dialogue Writing class that starts Wednesday July 1. Taught by local award-winning writer and director Steve Doughton (Buoy, 2012) the class includes writing exercises meant to unlock your artist’s toolbox, deconstructing scenes from films (Cassavetes and Mamet!), and a session with actors in-class. Over five class sessions you’ll work with Steve to put your ideas into practice while gaining a formal understanding of screenplay structure and dialogue styles. Great for those looking to gain more experience in writing for both film and theater, but should also appeal to to cinephiles and students in film studies.
