Gain insight from a working professional screenwriter into the world of storytelling. What is a 'five act structure'? Why is it used in everything from 'The X-factor to Finding Nemo'? What is a 'journey of change'? And what might your own story be, as you choose your destination for your undergraduate degree?'
