Screenwriting Classes at Los Angeles Performing Arts Conservatory

The Screenwriting Classes at the Los Angeles Performing Arts Conservatory trains the artist to be a visual storytelling using the written word.

Overview of LAPAC’s Screenwriting Classes

Los Angeles Performing Arts Conservatory (LAPAC) provides screenwriting training for beginners and advanced artists.  The final goal of the screenwriting classes is a portfolio of several finished scripts for shorts and a feature film script.

Screenwriting is can be deceptively simple.  While a good movie seems to come effortlessly off the screen, writing it requires the writer to compress an entire universe into a document approximately  90 – 120 pages long.  LAPAC will guide you through the challenges of this art form and prepare you for a career as screenwriting in Hollywood.

Our school is approved by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education as a degree granting institution and we offer an Associate Degree of Fine Arts in Screenwriting as well as 1-year screenwriting certificate program.
