300 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33132 United States
Learn all the basics of writing a screenplay, and finish the class with a script that you can actually shoot, send to film festivals, and maybe even win awards. This course is an introduction to the techniques and elements of screenwriting, designed to provide you with skills that cultivate 1) an ability to create narrative story lines; 2) an understanding of the dramatic structure of screenplays; and 3) an ability to read and write in basic film script format.
Margaret Cardillo Fronefield is a Florida native. She graduated from Boston College and then became Associate Editor at Hyperion Books Children. She earned two MFAs–one in Creative Writing and one in Screenwriting–from the University of Miami on fellowship. Her children’s book, JUST BEING AUDREY, a biography of Audrey Hepburn for children, won the Florida Book Award Gold Medal in 2011. Margaret’s next book, a children’s biography of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, will be published in 2017. Margaret’s film, POSTHUMOUS, won an Emmy in the student category, received several Best of Fest awards, and is being screened on Virgin Atlantic Airlines. Margaret teaches screenwriting at UM and lives with her family in Miami.
