Script Writing Certificate
Script writing is a writing genre that is exploratory in nature. Also known as a screenplay, it is divided into seven subsections. A script follows a specific outline and format to make it easy for a production team to follow through and make necessary edits.
Written for a video, movie, play or TV show, it gives you an opportunity to share a story that can engage, entertain and teach a large audience.
