Miami Screenwriting School

The script for a film or television series is the foundation of a production — the blueprint that producers, directors, actors, and editors follow to build a visual story into a seemingly real world that audiences experience and enjoy.

The New York Film Academy South Beach’s Screenwriting School offers a one-year conservatory program as well as a variety of screenwriting workshops, all designed to immerse aspiring screenwriters in the fundamentals of writing scripts in an intensive, hands-on program. Students become familiar with the structure, format, and best practices of writing scripts for film, television, movies, and web series.

However, screenwriting goes beyond learning the rules of formatting and the best practices of storytelling. Writing a script that truly stands out requires a deep commitment to developing riveting characters, compelling original stories, and one-of-a-kind adaptations. Each course is taught by professional screenwriters in a supportive environment that immerses students in the world of writing screenplays.

From the first day of class to the end of their program, students will be writing, rewriting, and revising constantly, working on a variety of exercises, projects as well as their own scripts, ultimately writing a first draft of a feature-length film. Students leave their conservatory program or short-term workshop at the top screenwriting school prepared to embark upon a career as a screenwriter. Screenwriting students enrolling at South Beach will receive an educational experience that will actively prepare them for the realities of the script writing industry.
