The Programme: overview

Through an intensive programme that integrates theories, methods and design practices by developing cross-disciplinary skills of analysis and cultural coding of contemporary languages, this Master intends to train professionals figures in the field of audio-visual screenwriting, who are capable of intercepting themes and narratives of a constantly evolving world for the development of cinematographic or serial projects of national and international relevance.

Learning Objectives:

Over the AM, students will have the opportunity to:

  • understand and codify the topics of the contemporary world by translating them into solid audio-visual narrative elements;
  • critically analyse writing in national and international productions to devise serial scripts;
  • work independently on screenwriting as well as manage team work in the writers room to carry out projects that follow professional standards.
